    The Indian State has been Indianising Goa since the 1961 annexation. What will Goa look like after Indianisation of Goa is complete?

    Please stop this menace in Goa. All wrong things are happening in Goa because of the corrupt Goa government. It is a pity that the some ministers are so corrupt and self centered that they even forgot about the Goa and the welfare of these Goan people. Politicians, don't you feel ashamed and guilty for what you are doing. Where is development, where are the jobs for the Goans. Please stop this. You'll are encouraging wrong elements to come into Goa and this is the result. Stop converting agricultural land and selling it to outsiders. If you are a real Goan you will think about this. Please Dear Goan Brothers and Sisters, wake up and see what is happening. Let's unite against these evil forces which are destroying Goa. God bless.
