After so many missed dates and deadlines, let us hope that Chief Minister
Manohar Parrikar finally keeps to his assurance made in the recent session
of the Goa Legislative Assembly that the Casino Policy would be announced
by 31st August.

While as the Leader of the Opposition Manohar Parrikar had vociferously
branded Casinos as a “social evil” and had called them "dens of vice".
While spearheading that agitation against Casinos, Manohar Parrikar had
vowed to make sure that all Casinos were thrown out of Goa if the BJP came
to power. But in a dramatic U turn in March 2012 after usurping power, the
BJP has gone all out to promote, shield and increase the number of Casinos
in the name of promoting Tourism. Goa has been always a known tourist
destination without being converted into a Las Vegas. Due to lack of vision
and sheer greed of those in power, Goa’s Tourism industry is today in
shambles and dire straits with quality and high-end Tourists keeping away
from venturing into what was once the Paradise of the East.



Manohar Parrikar while branding the revenue from Casinos as “bad” money had
declared in the Goa Legislative Assembly that the revenue from Casinos
would be kept in a separate account and utilized only on homes for the aged
and those suffering from Alzheimer's. On that revenue earned by the
government from Casinos, Manohar Parrikar had firmly stated "We don't want
to use that money to buy computers for students. We don’t need that money
in the budget”. Addressing the Goa Legislative Assembly on 7th August 2012,
Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar had also categorically and confidently
stated that he did not require the revenue from Casinos for Goa’s
developmental works.



On 10th October 2013 Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar had assured the Goa
Legislative Assembly that all the Casinos would be removed out of the River
Mandovi by September 2015. in the River Mandovi. Does the government have
to be told the definition of off shore?



Ironically the RSS which sets and gears the agenda for the BJP is known to
be against gambling but their now convenient silence on Casinos is
deafening. The BJP has fallen in passionate love with the Casino brigade
who are now getting the government’s abundant patronage and overwhelming
support. For the dismal number of jobs created for Goans by Casinos, the
overall damage that is being inflicted to the State is irreversible. While
the BJP is feasting and making merry with the abundant moolah flowing from
the Casinos, Goa has sadly become the country’s gambling hub with the
allied vices of Prostitution and the Narcotics trade also flourishing by
the day while the Crime rate is on a steep rise.
