A lot has been said and a lot will be said about the integrity of ‘Herald’ – its management and owner Raul Fernandes and its editor Sujay Gupta. Frankly speaking Mayabhushan Nagvenkar’s sting operation has put Herald in an unpredictable situation.
A lot has been said about the state of political affairs and bad governance in Goa, but nothing can or will change it if the people of Goa do not make an effort to bring about a change in this state of affairs.

Of course from the time he was picked up at the airport by Churchill Alemao and hosted by the PWD Minister at the Taj Exotica, the intent of Brar and the Congress party was clear; the rape of Goa because of illegal mining was not their concern; evading a political crisis was the main aim.
