Vanxim: failed attempt to bribe Bharat Mukti Morcha Mahila Chief

Today 18th October 2011 at 3.45 pm attempt was made to bribe Bharat Mukti Morcha Women's front Goa chief. Maggie Silveira who is also the President of Ilha de Vanxim Association was phoned by someone claiming to be Christian and the sarpanch of the neighboring village. These are the points of discussions:
1. He said that he and his three friends are giving full support whatever Maggie asks for.
2. He asked "Why you are opposing Project in Vanxim?"
3. 'What are the reasons for opposing the project?'
4. 'I want to have immediate meeting with you'.
5. 'Whatever money you demand will be given'.
6. Sarpanch himself said 'there will be lot of employment opportunities for local people'. At this moment Maggie replied 'How many jobs our local people are having in whole of Goa?' That that moment he named one minister that resides near by Panjim and said 'I will speak to him ad whoever is jobless will get the job. This I promise to you'. Immediately Maggie replied saying how can you talk of employment when we don't want the project at all? Again he said in konkni 'Hanga Kitem Ieonk Zai' (something must come up here). Maggie replied 'Hanga kitech ionk amcho ganvcho lok divcho-na' (our villagers will not allow anything to come up at Vanxim.)
7. Maggie concluded "OK Bye" and kept the receiver down.

This phone call is one of the pressure tactics to buy mulnivasis and establish Baman Raj. The caller and Mahendra Gaunekar believes that everyone is up for the sale just because Gaunekar was successful in buying Vanxim Island land from Archbishop of Goa who compromised his ethics to the core.

This project is promoted by bamon Mahendra Gaunekar and he is working very hard to involve MLAs, Ministers of the Goa Government. More people Gaunekar tries to involve to push ahead these insidious ways of land grab more people are going to turn against him and consequences will be there for all to witness.

Goa Archbishop bamon Felipe Neri Ferrao is responsible for this as he is the one in whose name Santa Monica lands are sold on record.
