Union Ministers running CMO in Goa: AAP

Panaji, Apr 17 (UNI) Aam Adami Party (AAP) on Tuesday took jibe at the government by claiming that it had become 'dysfunctional' and hence ministers from the Centre were made 'de facto CM's by turns.'
Stating that the state ministers were clueless about what was happening on ground, AAP said local ministers had become 'bystanders' and that all 'dealings' were made during the visit by 'these outside ministers' were either about Goa's land or rivers.
AAP targeted the Government for it's move to reduce casino licence fees and said the common man was reeling under the weight of the steep increase in fees of basic essential services such as obtaining land records in Form 1 and 14, survey plan, inspection of survey plans, partition and conversion charges.
In a statement, AAP Goa Convenor Elvis Gomes said the increase was hurting the common man so badly but instead of reconsidering the steep hike, the Government was more concerned about the health of casinos in the state.
"The charges of these basic documents have been hiked 300 times and the Government ignores the public outcry felt across taluka revenue offices but is busy considering reduction in the casino licence fees. What can one say except that such abnormal decisions can come only from a Government that exists for crony capitalists?" Mr Gomes said.
