* No shifting of IFFI to other Venue: Neelam Kapoor * Governor refuses to
meet delegation for Baina sex workers * More places identified as Plastic
Free Zone * New Maths book released.

BULLDOZERS RAZE BAINA SHANTIES: In one of the biggest demolitions witnessed
in the State, the government machinery razed about 250 illegal cubicles in a
20,000 sq m area in the Baina red-light area but faced opposition in the
early morning and also late evening when a shower of stones and soda water
bottles took the police and government officials of guard.It is learnt that
commercial sex workers had abandoned their cubicles and fled to unknown
destinations while many residents were rendered homeless. (GT)

REHABILITATION PLAN DROPPED: The government has dropped the plan to shift
commercial sex workers to the Bal Niketan at Ribandar while the St Cruz
Constituency Citizens Committee decided not to go ahead with the bandh
today. Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar, speaking to reporters, said only
about five families out of 242 sex workers, 152 family members and 24
brothel keepers, had approached the government for a rehabilitation package.
The shifting to Ribandar is not required, he added. (GT)

CONG FLAYS GOVT: Condemning as "most illegal" and "inhumane" the government
act of indiscriminately demolishing the legal and licensed commercial
establishments of Goans at Baina along with the cubicles of the commercial
sex workers, the Congress party in Goa yesterday demanded that the aggrieved
Goan business owners be immediately given a compensation package. (NT)

MMC MULLS CHANGING BAINA'S NAME: The Mormugao Municipal Council has called
for a special council meeting on 18 June during which a decision will be
take on changing Baina's name. (GT)

MATHANY IN, MICKKY OUT: UGDP MLA Mathany Saldanha was sworn in as a minister
in the two-year-old Parrikar-led government at a function at Raj Bhavan
while Tourism Minister Francisco (Mickky) Pacheco wad dropped from the
13-member Cabinet. The inclusion of Saldanha came with just over three weeks
left for pruning the Cabinet size to 12 to comply with the amendment to the
Anti-Defection Act. (GT)

TIME TO SUPPORT: "I've acted at an appropriate time.Parrikar government has
served well and it's time to support the government" was how Matanhy
Saldanha reacted after being urged by journalists to make a statement soon
after he was sworn in a minister at Raja Bhavan on Monday. (H)

STUNNED UGDP: Mathany Saldanha's sudden decision to join the BJP-led Manohar
Parrikar government came as a rude shock to the United Goans Democratic
Party, leaving the party bosses stunned. (GT)

TAKES OPPN BY SURPRISE: While heartily congratulating the UGDP MLA from
Cortalim, Mr Mathany Saldanha, on his elevation to the post of cabinet
minister in the State government, the president of the Goa Pradesh Congress
Committee, Mr Luizinho Faleiro, expressed surprise and indignation over the
appointment of a new minister when the government was legally required to
reduce one. (NT)

MASTER-STROKE: The latest decision on Goa's political chess-board to induct
Cortalim MLA into the Cabinet is likely to provide stability to the
two-year-old Parikar government. But the question is: for how long.
Undoubtedly, the move was made in the backdrop of activities which started
after Congress-led government came to power at the Centre last month. There
was a strong fear in the minds of the BJP leaders here that Congress leaders
may engineer a coup to form an alternative government. (H)

NEW KONKANI FILM 'ALEESHA': After the recent announcement of Konkani TV
channel on Asian News' TV network for Konkani lovers, there is more good
news with Rajendra Talak Production, Margao, announcing new Konkani
celluloid film 'Aleesha'. Noted Konkani lover Uday Bhembre said at the
function that it was rather sad that Konkani lacked in film production
although there are some remarkable films in this language like "Amchem
Noxib", Nirmonn", "Boglantt", etc, but now, he said, an era in the field of
Konkani music, art and culture has begun."People still differentiate between
'tiatr and natak', 'kantar and geet'. Why there can't be a natak out of a
tiatr and geet out of a kantar," Bhembre said. (GT)

MALE BODY FOUND: An unidentified male body was found washed ashore at
Calangute beach at about 6.30 pm on Monday evening. The deceased, estimated
to be about 35 years, is believed to have died due to drowning. (H)

HOUSE DAMAGED: The sudden collapse of a mango tree and two coconut threes on
the house of one Thomas Jose Fernandes, resident of Valvaddo-Varca, caused a
loss of around Rs.20,000 to the owner. (H)

DEMAND FOR DRAINAGE: Even though the monsoon has commenced in the State,
Colmorod in Navelim still lacks a proper drainage system. The residents had
approached their councilor, Mr Savio Coutinho, and suggested that a drain be
constructed from Lourdin Fernandes to Bento Fernandes' house. The work was
tendered about two years back. (NT)

PSYCHO-SOCIAL REHABILITATION: Sahodaya, a day care centre for psycho-social
rehabilitation, was inaugurated recently by Ms Pallavi Dempo. Sahodaya is a
venture of the COOJ Trust which works towards promoting mental health care
services in Goa. (NT)

GOA REVOLUTION DAY: The stage is being set up for celebrating the Goa
Revolution Day on 18 June in the State. The main function will be held at
Azad Maidan, Panaji, at 9.15 am, when Governor Kidar Nath Sahani will place
a wreath at the Martyrs' Memorial and also present mementos to 60 freedom
fighters. (GT)

KENI ON ROAD TO RECOVERY; Noted Konkani activist and former editor of
"Sunaprant" and "Rashtramat", Mr Chandrakant Keni's health was found to be
stable yesterday. Mr Keni had been admitted to Grace Cardiac Centre and
Hospital, Margao, on June 12 after he experienced giddiness at regular
intervals because of low blood pressure. (NT)

SOCCER LOVERS FURIOUS: The Electricity Department in Ponda has come under
fire from the residents here as soccer lovers in this part of the State are
deprived of watching the daily action of 'Euro 2004' on their TV monitors.
The entire city faced a black out on the night of 13 June which deprived
them of the titanic clash between France and England. (GT)

meet delegation for Baina sex workers * More places identified as Plastic
Free Zone * New Maths book released.

BAINA DEMOLITION DRIVE COMPLETE: After the demolition storm which swept
Baina on 14 June, the situation here was limping back to normalcy. Remnants
of some structures, which remained at the site, were razed to the ground
yesterday. CM Manohar Parrikar visited Vasco yesterday and took stock of the
emerging scenario at a meeting held at the office of the Deputy Collection.
Momurgao MLA Karl Vaz, Vasco MLA Rajendra Arlekar and other high ranking
government officials also attended the meet. (GT)

BJP BEAMS WITH JOB: The BJP yesterday expressed its happiness over clearing
of the commercial sex workers from Baina by the government and said that
Vasco and Mormugao residents can take pride in stating that the red light
area no longer exists in Baina. (GT)

NGOS MOVE HC: A group of NGOs have filed a petition in the Panjim bench of
the Bombay High Court challenging the manner in which the Baina issue is
being handled. The court, however, has denied all the interim reliefs
sought, including that the demolished structures be rebuilt. Eight NGOs-Arz,
Jan Ugahi, Bailancho Saad, Children's Rights in Goa, Positive People, Baina
Mahila Mandal, Baina Rehwasi Sangh and Sandarsh-had gone to court asking for
several reliefs. (H)

SEX WORKERS SHIFTING BASE: A socio-economic survey of the commercial sex
workers (CSWs ) at Baina undertaken by the Goa State Commission for Women,
has confirmed the NGOs' fears that the CSWs are not only changing their
modus operandi, but are also spreading all over the State. (H)

UGDP BACKS SALDANHA: The United Goans Democratic Party Presidium at a
special meeting on June 15, endorsed its lone MLA Mathany Saldanha's
inclusion in the State cabinet on grounds that his presence in the cabinet
was required to give proper direction to the government policies and also to
ventilate people's grievances. (GT)

MICKKY'S DISQUALIFICATION: Outgoing Tourism Minister Mickky Pacheco's cup of
woes seems to be far from over. A day after Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar
dropped him form his ministry, the UGDP on Tuesday decided to approach the
Speaker of the Goa Legislative Assembly to "expedite" the disqualification
petition against the Benaulim MLA. This was announced by UGDP spokesman
Radharao Gracias at a press briefing yesterday. (H)

GETTING READY FOR IFFI: In all, seven projects have been identified as core
facilities required to host the festival and the Goa State Infrastructure
Development Corporation is confident of completing the projects. Multiplex
at the Old Goa Medical College at Campal, Renovation of Kala Academy, Film
Bazaar near Darya Sangam, face lift to the heritage structure of old GMC,
promenade from Betim ferry point, New Patto bridge and parking. (GT)

NO MINISTER TAINTED: The BJP's Goa unit, which started on Tuesday its part
of the nationwide campaign to protest against the induction of tainted
ministers in the Union cabinet, has claimed that none of its ministers in
the state's coalition government were "tainted". (H)

HOUSEWIFE COMMITS SUICIDE: A 30-year-old housewife from Xeldem-Quepem
committed suicide by setting herself ablaze. In a complaint filed by one
Felix Fernandes of Xelvona, Lourencin Dias and her husband Anthony Xavier,
had frequent quarrels for about six years. Lourencin was working abroad and
came down to Goa about one month back. There was a quarrel between the
couple and on the same day Lourencin doused herself with kerosene and set
herself ablaze. (H)

LINESMAN ELECTROCUTED: Pedro Caldeiro (48), a linesman-cum-helper of the
Power department died of electrocution while working on a power line at
Pilar on June 15 afternoon. (H)

office in a no-confidence motion moved against her at a special meeting held
in the panchayat. The sarpanch and the members supporting her failed to turn
up at the meeting. Cynthia D'Silva is likely to become the next sarpanch.
(H)

GOA'S SLEAZY SPOTS: Like Baina there is no notified place in the capital
city of Panaji where flesh trade is going on. But sources maintain that
there are some sleazy places in the capital which cater to the needs of the
sex-customers.The coastal belt in north Goa has also been put on the sex map
by the sex operators.There are certain spots, including some hotels, in the
coastal belt where sex workers, Indian as well as foreigners, are supplied
to the clients in Calangute, Candolim, Anjuna, Baga and other places. The
commercial sex workers are also operating from some hotels of ill-repute in
the commercial town of Mapusa. (NT)

TILLARI WATERS: The State government is set to start all works of building
canals and water distribution systems inside Goa to bring water of the
Tillari Irrigation Project upto the farmers' fields and also upto the
off-take points of two water treatment plants of Assonora (Bardez) and

of India for training senior IAS, IFS and IPS officers in Goa, is offering
innovative part-time, unique and professional programmes affiliated to the
Goa University. The last date for admission to these programmes is 30 June.
(GT)

SANGUEM WATERFALLS NEGLECTED: The discovery of two waterfalls in Sanguem
taluka could well be the turning point in catapulting this area on the
tourist map of Goa. Located in the Netravali village, 25 kms away from
Sanguem city, Savari and Mahinapi waterfalls remain neglected on account of
poor infrastructure and pathetic approach roads. The Savari waterfall falls
from a height of almost 200 feet in Neturlim village while Haldikunem
village has been blessed with the Mahinapi falls, named after Mahinas
(birds). (GT)

up at the meeting. Cynthia D'Silva is likely to become the next sarpanch.

GOA'S SLEAZY SPOTS: Like Baina there is no notified place in the capital
city of Panaji where flesh trade is going on. But sources maintain that
there are some sleazy places in the capital which cater to the needs of the
sex-customers.The coastal belt in north Goa has also been put on the sex map
by the sex operators.There are certain spots, including some hotels, in the
coastal belt where sex workers, Indian as well as foreigners, are supplied
to the clients in Calangute, Candolim, Anjuna, Baga and other places. The
commercial sex workers are also operating from some hotels of ill-repute in
the commercial town of Mapusa. (NT)

innovative part-time, unique and professional programmes affiliated to the
Goa University. The last date for admission to these programmes is 30 June.
(GT)

SANGUEM WATERFALLS NEGLECTED: The discovery of two waterfalls in Sanguem
taluka could well be the turning point in catapulting this area on the
tourist map of Goa. Located in the Netravali village, 25 kms away from
Sanguem city, Savari and Mahinapi waterfalls remain neglected on account of
poor infrastructure and pathetic approach roads. The Savari waterfall falls
from a height of almost 200 feet in Neturlim village while Haldikunem
village has been blessed with the Mahinapi falls, named after Mahinas
(birds). (GT)

* No shifting of IFFI to other Venue: Neelam Kapoor * Governor refuses to
meet delegation for Baina sex workers * More places identified as Plastic
Free Zone * New Maths book released.

BULLDOZERS RAZE BAINA SHANTIES: In one of the biggest demolitions witnessed
in the State, the government machinery razed about 250 illegal cubicles in a
20,000 sq m area in the Baina red-light area but faced opposition in the
early morning and also late evening when a shower of stones and soda water
bottles took the police and government officials of guard.It is learnt that
commercial sex workers had abandoned their cubicles and fled to unknown
destinations while many residents were rendered homeless. (GT)

REHABILITATION PLAN DROPPED: The government has dropped the plan to shift
commercial sex workers to the Bal Niketan at Ribandar while the St Cruz
Constituency Citizens Committee decided not to go ahead with the bandh
today. Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar, speaking to reporters, said only
about five families out of 242 sex workers, 152 family members and 24
brothel keepers, had approached the government for a rehabilitation package.
The shifting to Ribandar is not required, he added. (GT)

CONG FLAYS GOVT: Condemning as "most illegal" and "inhumane" the government
act of indiscriminately demolishing the legal and licensed commercial
establishments of Goans at Baina along with the cubicles of the commercial
sex workers, the Congress party in Goa yesterday demanded that the aggrieved
Goan business owners be immediately given a compensation package. (NT)

MMC MULLS CHANGING BAINA'S NAME: The Mormugao Municipal Council has called
for a special council meeting on 18 June during which a decision will be
take on changing Baina's name. (GT)

MATHANY IN, MICKKY OUT: UGDP MLA Mathany Saldanha was sworn in as a minister
in the two-year-old Parrikar-led government at a function at Raj Bhavan
while Tourism Minister Francisco (Mickky) Pacheco wad dropped from the
13-member Cabinet. The inclusion of Saldanha came with just over three weeks
left for pruning the Cabinet size to 12 to comply with the amendment to the
Anti-Defection Act. (GT)

TIME TO SUPPORT: "I've acted at an appropriate time.Parrikar government has
served well and it's time to support the government" was how Matanhy
Saldanha reacted after being urged by journalists to make a statement soon
after he was sworn in a minister at Raja Bhavan on Monday. (H)

STUNNED UGDP: Mathany Saldanha's sudden decision to join the BJP-led Manohar
Parrikar government came as a rude shock to the United Goans Democratic
Party, leaving the party bosses stunned. (GT)

TAKES OPPN BY SURPRISE: While heartily congratulating the UGDP MLA from
Cortalim, Mr Mathany Saldanha, on his elevation to the post of cabinet
minister in the State government, the president of the Goa Pradesh Congress
Committee, Mr Luizinho Faleiro, expressed surprise and indignation over the
appointment of a new minister when the government was legally required to
reduce one. (NT)

MASTER-STROKE: The latest decision on Goa's political chess-board to induct
Cortalim MLA into the Cabinet is likely to provide stability to the
two-year-old Parikar government. But the question is: for how long.
Undoubtedly, the move was made in the backdrop of activities which started
after Congress-led government came to power at the Centre last month. There
was a strong fear in the minds of the BJP leaders here that Congress leaders
may engineer a coup to form an alternative government. (H)

NEW KONKANI FILM 'ALEESHA': After the recent announcement of Konkani TV
channel on Asian News' TV network for Konkani lovers, there is more good

function that it was rather sad that Konkani lacked in film production
although there are some remarkable films in this language like "Amchem
Noxib", Nirmonn", "Boglantt", etc, but now, he said, an era in the field of
Konkani music, art and culture has begun."People still differentiate between
'tiatr and natak', 'kantar and geet'. Why there can't be a natak out of a
tiatr and geet out of a kantar," Bhembre said. (GT)

MALE BODY FOUND: An unidentified male body was found washed ashore at
Calangute beach at about 6.30 pm on Monday evening. The deceased, estimated
to be about 35 years, is believed to have died due to drowning. (H)

the house of one Thomas Jose Fernandes, resident of Valvaddo-Varca, caused a
loss of around Rs.20,000 to the owner. (H)

DEMAND FOR DRAINAGE: Even though the monsoon has commenced in the State,
Colmorod in Navelim still lacks a proper drainage system. The residents had
approached their councilor, Mr Savio Coutinho, and suggested that a drain be
constructed from Lourdin Fernandes to Bento Fernandes' house. The work was
tendered about two years back. (NT)

PSYCHO-SOCIAL REHABILITATION: Sahodaya, a day care centre for psycho-social
rehabilitation, was inaugurated recently by Ms Pallavi Dempo. Sahodaya is a
venture of the COOJ Trust which works towards promoting mental health care
services in Goa. (NT)

GOA REVOLUTION DAY: The stage is being set up for celebrating the Goa
Revolution Day on 18 June in the State. The main function will be held at
Azad Maidan, Panaji, at 9.15 am, when Governor Kidar Nath Sahani will place
a wreath at the Martyrs' Memorial and also present mementos to 60 freedom
fighters. (GT)

KENI ON ROAD TO RECOVERY; Noted Konkani activist and former editor of
"Sunaprant" and "Rashtramat", Mr Chandrakant Keni's health was found to be
stable yesterday. Mr Keni had been admitted to Grace Cardiac Centre and
Hospital, Margao, on June 12 after he experienced giddiness at regular
intervals because of low blood pressure. (NT)

SOCCER LOVERS FURIOUS: The Electricity Department in Ponda has come under
fire from the residents here as soccer lovers in this part of the State are
deprived of watching the daily action of 'Euro 2004' on their TV monitors.

them of the titanic clash between France and England. (GT)
