Goa Chief Minister called to resign over Vanxim coporate land grab

Ilha de Vanxim Association calls upon Mr.Manohar Parrikar to step down as Chief Minister. Mr.Parrikar has not ordered the work on retaining wall in Vanxim to stop even after bringing it to his notice on 13th February 2014. A copy of the letter objecting to the retaining wall signed by 56 voter of Vanxim is also given to him.

The important extract of this letter dated 23rd October 2012 addressed to the Sao Mathias Sarpanch says" We strongly object to Retaining Wall, as it is a part of a 109 page Joint Development Agreement between (1) Mahendra Gaunekar (2) Ms Sonali Gaunekar and Ozone Leisure and Resorts Private Limited dated 11/8/2009 and registered at the office of the Sub Registrar, Ilhas, Panjim, Goa. 

     In this Agreement the Retaining Wall along with the Golf Course, Hotel, Spa, Resort, Villa, Casinos, Private marinas etc are mentioned to be constructed at Vanxim. We strongly object to the Retaining Wall, as it is the very first point as part of the infrastructure mentioned as point no.1 on the Joint Development Agreement.

     With deep reading & Understanding the Joint Development Agreement we have fully understood the game plan of Mahendra Gaunekar regarding construction of Retaining wall. 

     We request your kind office, therefore to abolish the plans to construct the said Retaining Wall in Vanxim." 

The retaining wall work has not stopped even after for the simple reason that Chief Minister has not acted on the letter from Ilha de Vanxim Association. Since the Chief Minister does not act in this very serious matter he is called to resign as Chief Minister with immediate effect.  

What is going on in Vanxim currently is land grab and Chief Minister through his inaction is party to the same. Hence he has no legitimacy to rule Goa. 

In addition to Ilha de Vanxim Association elected Panch of Vanxim Greta Vaz too filed objections before Chief Minister on 14th February 2014.

Chief Minister by his inaction has shirked his responsibility to act and highly failed to pass the order work on retaining wall to stop. Such Chief Minister must step down with immediate effect as he is not concerned about public but more concern about ozone corporate and Gaunekar who are all out to destroy the beautiful islands of Goa.
