Just like it always happens, following the liberation, local political parties take over the power in their own hands, and then they try to put things together with their own judgement. When Goa was liberated by the Indian Army from the clutches of Portuguese rule, the regional party took over the reign of the state and devised the course of action as for how to take the state forward. But in the last 57 years, all the political parties have done only one thing to Goa, and that is destruction.
