But these ruthless guys have their own agenda to kill Goa’s forests, rivers, seas, hills, habitats, to transport coal. Let’s shame these guys. Don’t be sossegado. Join eco warriors NGO’s . Write letters. Be a proud goan. So you can tell your kids, grand kids. You did your bit to save goa. It’s now or never.”
