Once the election is won by whatever means, MLA / Minister thinks his seat is firmed or secured for at least next 5 years and that they can do whatever they want including minting money etc by means of corruptions, U-turns etcJobs are sold to the highest bidder, Mining leases granted in exchange of crores of Rupees.
Activists turn politicians are no different, I mean, they too change colours e.g.‘Zero tolerance to corruption’ becomes ‘Some tolerance to corruption is acceptable’’
We all know they are corrupt, corrupt to the core. We all know their involvement in criminal activities, illegal mining, money laundering, drugs, rapes, assaults etcAnd yet, we see the same politicians back to power, elections after elections.
Why should we allow the same corrupt and criminal to contest again and again?Why should we allow our MLAs & MPs to continue knowingly they are non-performing, corrupt and involved in criminal activities?
Can’t we democratically get rid of such dirty elements for good?Can’t we recall them the same way we elect them?
Well, there is a solution, a new way ‘NOVI DIXA’ if followed, it is possible to elect only the good and upright persons to represent us as MLAs & MPs.
Tomazinho Cardozo, suggests ways and means to reform the present electoral processin his latest Tiatr NOVI DIXA (Kala Mogi, Candolim) at the ongoing 38th Tiatr Competition organised by Kala Academy of Goa (supported by TAG) staged on 30th Oct. 2012.
I believe, the new electoral reforms is the need of the hour to save our Goa, to save our Country.
The tiatr talks about the present dirty? electoral process and dirty politicians’ tactics including money distribution, muscle power, funding by mining giants, jobs sale etc.
Irene Cardozo, Joycelyn Misquita, Anthony Carvalho, Shivanand Naik, Sheik Amir were in the lead roles supported by Selza Lopes, Simonia Cardozo, Maria, Edwin, Larissa, Assis etc
The tiatr had 13 songs and my favourite one was the duo sung by Eugenio and Sandra Cardozo. Besides, there were other singers like Mathias Mascrenhas, Edwin Fernandes, Luis Fernandes, Larissa Fernandes, Irene – Tomazinho Cardozo, Joao – Assis Cardozo, Joycelyn Misquita, Valentina Sequeira, Maria Cardozo etc.
