The Chief Minster and his Ministers of Goa never seem to "publicly" condemn crimes.

Instead,they are more likely to claim it wont happen in Goa or will not happen again.

This lack of Public condemnation, sends a wrong signal to Criminals; that the Government is in the least bothered about such criminality.

Goa Police do not have the best reputation for Policing. They are better known for their "lethargy" and " financial greed".
