I am not going to jump to any conclusion on the reasons behind which the Chief Minister, Manohar Parrikar stated in the House of the Assembly ‘That there in no illegal mining in Goa but illegal extraction of ore.’
Over the last three weeks the tussle between Manohar (Babu) Azgaonkar and Pratima Coutinho has been making amusing reading. And strangely this entire episode has got nothing to do with Babu’s concern for the vendors, instead it has to do with the MMC vice-chairperson, Coutinho not clearing his file on some illegal structural changes that he wants done at his MMC allotted shop.
It is with great interest I read a recent blog on IBNLive.com ‘Goa CM flies the way you and I do’ which portrayed the humane side of Parrikar devoid of any ministerial airs. And I am surprised that people are surprised about it, because this is Manohar Parrikar whether CM or not.
