I have just read an article on an Indian Newspaper where home minister Ravi Naik is suggesting that Terror Alerts are conducted only just before the Tourist season to derail the season.

He alleges that this is by a Hotel Lobby group to steal Tourists from Goa.

He also questions why these Alerts are only given during the Tourist season & not during the quiter season.

Perhaps he has not learnt and will never ever learn that Terrorists wish to maximise their efforts & publicity and this is done when the Public / Tourists are out and about.

Has he forgotten about Bali?or Mumbai or the 9/11 or the recent bomb plot attempted in Times Square in New York.

What about terrorist attacks during the Commonwealth games.Why have so many security people around the games..

I am not sure why Mr Digamber |Kamat still wants this Home Minster to be a part of his Party / Coalition.

The Goans would do very well to get rid of him...by which ever method is possible.

I would spit on this Home Minister if I had an opportunity.

David Headleys original name has been something like Gilan!

Do we hesitate to call the terrorist by this name Gilani?

Is it for political reasons?
