The Shiv Sena is all set to queer the pitch for the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) in Goa, which is due to go to polls in early 2017.

Shiv Sena president Uddhav Thackeray has launched his party’s Goa campaign with the possibility of an alliance with Goa Suraksha Manch (GSM), the new party floated by Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) rebel Subhash Velingkar.

Interesting reason to contest an election, ISN'T IT? . These two groups are more interested in toppling the government, instead of ruling the state to do some good to the state. The sole purpose of election in a democracy is defeated here. Subhash Veligkar, though fighting for a cause close to his heart (note that it is not close to everyones heart), is a man who is a bit disillusioned with his goals. Looking at the past, it looks like his is a personal vendetta towards Parikar AND NOT THE GOOD OF THE STATE. The Shiv Sena is obviously making hay while the sun shines.

The only losers in this whole game will be the Konkanni protagonists irrespective of the script they support, and the cause for all this will be none other than Mr. Uday Bhembre.



Alas!!!!what a plight !! A man who fought for the individual identity of the Goan State during the Opinion Poll, is just playing into the hands of the Maharatrvaadis!!!!!!Life has gone a full circle for this lost lawyer from Margao. For sure his father must be having the last laugh-posthomously- since his PRODIGAL SON HAS RETURNED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

GOD SAVE GOA... LORD PARSHURAM SAVE GOA WITH YOU ARROW ONCE AGAIN!!!!!! AINT FRANCIS XAVIER SAVE US NOW AS U SAVE US AGAINST SHAMBHAJI!!!!!!
