How can anyone take the word of the tourism minister? He has no clue what he talks about and says …this is just another of his big proclamations. The Lokayukta verdict is awaited .
Tourism minister Dilip Parulekar has claimed that his department’s stand on the beach cleaning contract being devoid of any irregularities, whatsoever, has been vindicated by the latest report of the director of vigilance.
Director of vigilance had called for a status report in response to a letter from the registrar, Goa Lokayukta, on the complaint filed by Aires Rodrigues, an advocate, alleging a multi-crore scam in the tender of comprehensive management of Goa’s beaches, raising the number of issues and demanded to register a first information report against many persons. The status report says that the complaint was without any supportive evidence vis-a-vis charges of corruption.
