Bharat Mukti Morcha (BMM) strongly condemns 16/12/2016 decision of Goa Cabinet to declare 82,595 sq. mts of paddy fields, water bodies and Khazan lands camouflaged as ‘Orchard’ into ‘settlement’ to facilitate construction of five star hotel and luxury villas by Ozone Leisure and Resorts Pvt. Ltd. The roots of this tragedy however are traced to brazen craze to liquidate Church lands all over Goa at the Office of the Goa Archbishop. BMM is not opposed to the Church nor to the Catholic Faith and but is totally opposed to the existing long term criminal nexus with real estate dealers. In fact BMM continues to carry forward this struggle by employing various tools of analysis available in Bible (Ephesians 6: 12) with regard to Vanxim. BMM continues to place itself against principalities and powers controlling the Office of the Goa Archbishop, against the rulers the world of this darkness in Goa Cabinet and against the spirits of wickedness in the high places in the office of the Indian Minister of Defense, Manohar Parrikar that remote controls Goa Government.
Cabinet decision is massive fraud not only from the office of the Archbishop but also from the Goa State. A complaint of fraud in Vanxim Association was filed by late Ligorio Silveira with Mamlatdar of Tiswadi as early as 17/4/1995 (See: http://bharatmukti.blogspot.in/2016/07/documents-of-vanxim-tenants-association.html). Office of the Archbishop claims that it based its decision to sell Vanxim on the N.O.C from Tenants Association of Vanxim dated 26/2/1996. Goa Government was already intimated and urged to crackdown on existing frauds and how boundaries are breached to destroy paddy fields by team headed Narayan Bhosle. Office of the Archbishop further acted against interests of the tenants deliberately (See http://bharatmukti.blogspot.in/2016/08/whats-aim-whats-game-goa-archbishops.html). Goa Cabinet decision has placed itself on par with the office of Goa Archbishop thereby raising them into twin towers of corruption. This twin tower of corruption currently looks invincible with even CBI refused to investigate in spite of letter of BMM disclosing details.
Late Mathany Saldanha was totally opposed to the conversion of Vanxim Paddy fields for tourism purpose. He had declared shortly before his death that this project will never come up in Vanxim. At a meeting in Delhi organized by Delhi Goans Association discussion Vanxim he had uttered that Goa Archbishop’s office is the office of business bureaucrats.
BMM Calls for abolition of land titles granted to Ozone Leisure and Resorts Pvt. Ltd and revocation of the said cabinet approval to declare Vanxim as Investment Promotion Area. IPB Act as colonial enterprise with imperialist designs. Declaration of Vanxim as ‘Investment Promotion Area’ shift powers to the Secretaries to the government who are IAS officers sent to Goa by Central government with directions from Prime Minister’s Office (PMO). Declaration of Goa Cabinet means direct imposition of rule of Central Government with PMO as an epicenter of Corruption.
IPB Act has been passed to enforce what is blatantly illegal. In case of Chapora River judgment of Nation Green Tribunal (NGT) it has been clear the Governance in Goa is an exception while abuse of Governance is a rule. Passing of IPB Act in Goa Assembly is a law meant to institutionalize this abuse of Governance. It can best be compared to the assembly of robbers gathering in the centre of town and passing a decree declaring their activities usurping of Goa’s lands as legal. Vanxim thus is handed over to the gang of dacoits where their dark rule of darkness reins. BMM will always stand against this in bold and uncompromising manner.
The consequences of this way of political governance will be “terrible as an army set in array” (Canticle of Canticles 6:3). BMM calls upon members of public to prepare for the long drawn wrestles against the powers that rule with wicked intentions, who pass laws that make land grabs legitimate. BMM will continue to raise its voice and requests people of Goa to contact us directly to shoulder responsibilities in organized manner. Please contact us directly in order to build up the momentum in numbers and take the movement across the State of Goa.
