Goa Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar today equated the current anxiety amongst the trader community about GST to the Y2K syndrome, witnessed in the year 2000. “When GST is being implemented, I remember anxious moments when Y2K syndrome came along. I remember people telling me that flights will stop mid air,” Parrikar said addressing the annual general meeting of Goa State Industries Association in Panaji.

“This morning some people told me that all business will get stalled on July 1. I told them I don’t agree with you because your first interaction with GST would be on August 10 officially even as per the Act,” he said. “You don’t have to do anything till then. There is lot of fear and lot of anxiety since it is new. I think sometime even if you work out new initiative with the government, people still get confused even if they are good for you,” Parrikar said.

The chief minister said “breaking out from fear is one of the most important aspect for anyone to succeed, if you don’t have fear then you will be casual.” “Fear also indicates responsibility and when you start your own entreprenuership in a corner of mind, the fear needs to be continuously there,” he added. “I believe that everything has a solution. There is almost nothing which cannot be solved,” he added.

    NONE OF HIS LATE STORIES IS BELIEVEABLE . Now months after resigning from DM he comes out with his Bull stories. He was never interested in Hard dedicate work in DM he took it because the high command of the party wanted to shunt him out of Goa. And BRING THEIR OWN CLUMSY CM WHO WAS A BIG FAILURE. This Feni addicted CM and his famous weakness for PHIS is well know. He rather spend time in Goa PHIS MARKET THEN SIGN DEFENCE CONTRACT. It could be the defence commission was all collected by the party treasury. Jai Bharatmamaji
