It is outrageous that the Goa Government is now contemplating setting up a Coconut Corporation and a Mango one too.

While there are fully fledged departments to undertake their respective tasks, over the years parallel pointless Corporations have been created solely to rehabilitate politicians and allow them to merrily enjoy free perks and privileges at taxpayer’s expense. In 2012 the BJP had promised that professionals in their respective fields would head these government Corporations. But it was just another reneged promise.

Infact Kadamba Transport Corporation and the Waste Management Corporation are the only two whose existence is justifiable. What about a Human Waste Management Corporation? Goa is far from being the promised Open Defecation Free State as previously claimed in 2019. And possibly a Corporation to deal with the Stray animals will be a huge benefit to the State as the stray dogs and stray cattle are an enormous menace to society. All the other corporations are an unnecessary huge burden on our debt ridden State and must be wound up in public interest.

For rationalization in government spending, strong and sincere austerity measures need to be taken and such criminal waste of public funds on superfluous Corporations needs to end. Fiscal accountability and Responsibility has to be an on-going sustained process with every paisa of the taxpayer very judiciously spent.

Goa’s state coffers being now in a huge fiscal upheaval, it is the bounden duty and responsibility of the authorities to work towards setting the State of Goa back on the road to economic prosperity.
