While the Supreme Court of India has been repeatedly highlighting the need
of ensuring morality in public life, Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar to
safeguard his own Chair has stooped to a very treacherous act by
high-handedly appointing the very tainted and controversial
Babush Monserrate as the Chairman of the newly created Greater Panaji
Planning and Development Authority (PDA).

This very politically motivated and skewed move by Manohar Parrikar is
devoid of any public interest. This needless PDA has been carved out to
solely reward Goa Forward and Babush Monserrate for his support to the
current ruling coalition and by giving him a lucrative avenue to further
loot and plunder.

Babush Monserrate in January 2005 was stripped of the Town & Country
Planning portfolio by Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar for having committed
large scale and rampant illegalities in conversion of land.

Later due to his very controversial Regional Plan 2011 which led to a huge
uproar and public outrage, Babush Monserrate in January 2007 was forced to
resign as Town & Country Planning Minister.

Babush Monserrate has also committed very serious offences involving moral
turpitude and stands charge sheeted by the CBI in the Panaji Police Station
storming case while the alleged rape case against him is also pending probe
before the Crime Branch.

Besides his deep rooted links with the land mafia, Babush Monserrate has
huge land banks within the jurisdiction of this newly Greater Panaji PDA
which includes Taleigao, Chimbel, St Cruz, Old Goa and
Curca-Bambolim-Talaulim. We will now have to sadly witness the accelerated
destruction and devastation of the remaining hills and fields in these
villages. Sorrowing lies our Goa.
