AAP to form shadow cabinet in BJP-led Goa
March 03, 2015 09:45 AM
With the Congress proving unable to create enough space as opposition, the AAP has resolved to form a shadow cabinet to keep track of ministerial functioning in the Bharatiya Janata Party-led (BJP) coalition government in Goa. The shadow cabinet will be operated by the youth wing members of AAP. It will track and evaluate the delivery of the BJP-led state government on its poll promises as made in its election manifesto in 2012, said Suhani Shah, an AAP spokesperson. "It will also track the progress of the current BJP government vis-a-vis the promises made to the youth in their 2012 manifesto," she added. After contesting the Lok Sabha elections in the state, the AAP, has been in political hibernation for long and revived only recently, following the huge victory of the party in the Delhi state assembly polls.

Goa CM implores against communally sensitive comments
February 28, 2015 10:33 AM
No one should make statements which can disturb the communal harmony in Goa said Chief Minister Laxmikant Parsekar, even as the VHP on Friday commented that it would make efforts to re-convert Goan Christians to Hinduism. Parsekar, however, said that no action could be taken against the Vishwa Hindu Parishad spokesperson because free speech was a fundamental right. "I feel as chief minister that nobody should make any statement that would disturb or affect the communal harmony?" Parsekar said on late Friday. Earlier, ahead of VHP's golden jubilee function in the state, Dada Bedak, secretary in-charge of the Satsang (spiritual discourse) division, had said that the senior leaders would discuss issues like re-conversion and love jihad and how to approach them in next 50 years.

Congress resolves to expel Goa lawmaker for anti-party activity
February 18, 2015 10:37 AM
The Congress' Goa unit on Tuesday resolved to expel a sitting legislator for life for allegedly working against the party in last week's assembly bypoll, in which the party received a drubbing at the hands of the ruling BJP. Addressing a press conference at the state party headquarters, spokesperson Sunil Kawthankar said that the state executive committee had formally resolved to expel St. Cruz legislator Atanasio Monserrate for alleged anti-party activity. "This should send a strong message to those who do not have the best interests of the party at heart," he said, adding that Monserrate had made several statements to the media asking his supporters to vote for the Bharatiya Janata Party during last week's bypoll in Panaji.

No plans to censor theatre in Goa: BJP
February 18, 2015 10:34 AM
Goa's ruling Bharatiya Janata Party on Tuesday denied that it had any plans to set up a censor board for tiatrs (local theatre), even as the opposition attacked the state government for even considering such a move. Speaking to reporters Panaji, BJP state vice president Wilfred Mesquita said that "neither the government nor the BJP as a party have nothing on our minds about censoring tiatr". "This is just a figment of imagination used by the opposition to attack the party," he said. For thousands of Goans, especially Goan Catholics, the tiatr is more than just a play or a theatre outing. With its socially and politically relevant and organic themes, watching a tiatr show on weekends, religious feast days and holidays is like watching their own lives play out under bright lights, mixed with a bit of banter and slapstick fun and a touch of tragedy.

Goa Lok Sabha Election Summary 2014

The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has won both the seats in Goa. The North Goa and South Goa constituencies are grabbed by BJP.
The smallest state of the country, Goa, represents two Lok Sabha seats. The present government in Goa is run by Bharatiya Janata Party's (BJP) alliance and Laxmikant Parsekar is the present Chief Minister of the state. BJP and Indian National Congress (INC) are the major political parties in the state. In 2009 elections, BJP and INC won one seat each. The past history of Lok Sabha polls in Goa have witnessed the lead by these political parties in the state only. The 2014 Lok Sabha elections saw 76.82% voter turnout in Goa. As there are only two constituencies, it was a close competition between the two parties and the new entrant Aam Aadmi Party. The surveys and the exit polls expected one seat each to BJP and INC.

Goa is the smallest state in India in terms of area (3,702 sq km) and is the 4th smallest in terms of population. However, in terms of GDP per capita, it is the richest state in India. This state shares its border with Karnataka and Maharashtra.
