When one falls in favour the ruling dispensations are quick to throw the first stone, one which is enough, to take the life out of you. All your money, gimmicks and tantrums will not work, once the decision is made the dye is cast. God save the King!

Sunil....Churchill brothers are professional criminals and that is the main reason till today they are avoiding themselves from going to jails...it is only in your dream that Mickey can hit corrupt congress...as most of Goa voters have sold their soul and moral to the wind...they vote on basis of how much money and other materials they get and not on basis of candidates character....BJP coming to power will be disaster following on tiny Goa....as BJP is consists of funatics who can compare with Talibans...remember Parrikar and his gang of legislative members are not clean.All the 40 from Goa vidyan sabha are hand in glove to loot and destroy Goa.

I wish some more of his colleagues could give him company in Sada jail. I really pity the Benaulim people who who vote for such clowns (alemaos included).

Mickky Pacheco will now , while in jail, be able to reflect on the famous phrase..."MONEY IS THE ROOT OF ALL EVIL".He may not have to wait for too long ,for some company.There are several other MLA`s that have criminal cases pending against them in Courts.Following the Lokayuta Bill, the others like the Alemaos will also soon see some Prison walls too.

At last there is some sense prevailing, the courts have done a great job by showing no one above the law... Money can buy you a lot of things but the truth always prevails is the way the court's have shown...
