PTI, NEW DELHI | 07 February 2010 22:00 IST

Chief Minister Digambar Kamat today said the state has taken all the necessary steps for the security of visitors.

The chief minister has expressed "grave" concern over intelligence reports that Goa is on the radar of terrorists in view of increasing tourists from Western European countries, US and Israel.


Kamat, who was speaking at the CMs' conference on internal security in the national capital here, said police have been sensitised to provide proper security to both domestic and foreign tourists.

He also sought sanction of a special scheme for Goa Police to enable procurement of requisite equipment, vehicles and weaponry to set up a Central Police Control Room in Panaji.

"Goa is a small state and does not have the resources to finance the above proposed measures.

"Goa is a small State and does not have the resources to Finance...... ??? This is all bullshit !!! Likeminded people, lack of political awareness and who don't understand about the economic stability of the State shall accept this statement.

Resources are ''RESOURCES'' and GOAN elected represantatives should know very well how to protect them, make good use of them for the prospects and progress... Keeping in mind/study about the real NECESSITY, ALTERNATIVE OPTIONS and ADVANTAGE for GROWTH.

Resources can be in any form, they are just the assets which are available? Planning Commision/Ministry of STATE is just BAD, SELFISH and Full of HYPOCRITES (....gradually increasing from last 4 Terms ). They don't know anything about what is the ACTUAL or REAL NEED about taking up any project? But one thing they Know VERY WELL is How to MAKE MONEY OUT of THAT and Protect the SEAT.

In the Year 2008-09, Central Govt has sanctioned resources in CRORES of Rupees to the state Govt. What MAJOR thing did we achieve till now? Can anybody tell me??? Except Pavement Work in some parts and the Govt from Last 4 terms has laid foundation stones,issued permits/licences, destroyed NATURAL resources (agricultural lands, fields, forests etc.), employment through bribes to outsiders and NOT to the resources of Goa (Qualified Unemployed Youth of Goa), Corruption etc. etc. .

One example... Why do we need another AIRPORT when there is already one existing? Upgrade the Dabolim Airport (Raise the structure of terminal building, expand it towards northern side, cut and fill the rocky part for additional taxiways (will help air traffic not to travel on the runway itself before and after landing - which can again increase the landing and takeoff of flights), upgrade the existing night landing facility (replace the lights/replace worn out asphalt and road markings(beaded) with PMB binder/wearing course). Please know first the type and how to make use of resources and complain about No Resources!

"GOD CREATED THIS EARTH WITH FULL of RESOURCES EVERYWHERE and RESOURCES in MANY FORMS and are HIDDEN. EXPLORE THEM and PROSPER" and Don't Explore them and then Deplore?
