Our elected representatives must empower the people and not themselves. It is imperative that those elected stay connected with the people and that there is always an ongoing discourse to meet the needs and aspirations of the public.
Good Governance is all about heeding to the voice of the people and not muzzling them. There is need of empowering people with honest information and facts, to enable them to work with the Government to achieve solutions to issues that are of paramount importance to the people and the common good, not vanity projects or cheap gesture politics for photoshoots.
We elect legislators not for cutting ribbons and breaking coconuts at hot-mixing of roads but to be excellent outstanding law makers and to enact good laws while extensively debating issues concerning the betterment besides the welfare of the people and the State.
Goa will see better days only when we elect persons of integrity at all levels of Governance who are worthy to hold public office, with the intellectual capability and acumen to undertake the task of serving the people, truthfully and sincerely for the common good. Good Governance never depends upon laws only, but upon the personal qualities and integrity of those who govern.
