Battle for Panjim was a debate held in association with HCN at the Courtyard of the Gonsalves Mansion. This debate was held before the Panjim by elections in 2015 to discuss the agenda of the candidates who were standing for elections.
A private discussion was held with Manohar Parrikar and a bunch of invited guests at the Conerence room at our Mansion. Our guests got a chance to question and discuss one on one, issues relating to Goa nad what plans Mr. Parrikar had in that regard. We introduced the campaign #IndiaNeedsGoa as we believe that Goa alone can show the wa forward to the rest of India.
Goa is well known for its crab mentality, which means that a Goan can never appreciate the success of another Goan, instead they will always try and bring their fellow Goans down at the first given chance. We threw an alternative thought of having an Eagle mentality instead, where you think of bigger things and help each other to grow. The discussion was held with PrimeTV.
