According to the new norms set in the UK, the Portuguese consulate in London has warned all the Portuguese citizens that include the Goans who have taken the BI (Bilhete de Identidade) and settled in the UK to get their permanent residence cards in the UK to avoid any inconvenience in the future. Portugal’s secretary of state for communities Jose Luis Carneiro has advised Portuguese nationals, including those of Goan origin in the UK to obtain a permanent residence card and also seek dual nationality to ensure that all their rights are protected.

In the context of Portuguese nationality and dual citizenship which has become an issue of controversy in Goa, Mr. Michael Lobo, MLA of Calangute constituency has told the media that the Goa Government will not sympathize with the Goans who give up their Indian Nationality. While speaking on the Prudent media TV show called Head On Mr. Lobo said that “You go to any country, London or Dubai but on Indian Passport. You can work over there and even take your family along with you. Go on a work visa, work hard, make money and come back to Goa. There are many Goans who surrenders their Indian citizenship and gone to the UK and according to me that is wrong,” he said.

He further said that “Show me one Goan who went abroad on Portuguese passport and after coming back to Goa he or she surrendered the same and took the Indian citizenship. We cannot call such people Goenkar. Goans do not need outsiders in Goa. They feel offended when an outsider comes here and become Goenkar in a like manner today the UK is also feeling the same.”

Mr. Lobo also made many revelations about the lifestyle of Goans who lives in the UK. According to Mr. Lobo, “The Goans who are in the UK does not stay in Bungalow. They take on a villa with three bedroom and six families stay in that. Husband, wife, and their kids stay in a single room there in the UK,” said Mr. Lobo.

According to Mr. Lobo going to Portugal and settling down is not a good option since the economy of Portugal is worst than Goa. “Portugal is a poor country. Goa is still much better than Portugal and hence the only option is to come back to India and take up Indian citizenship with the help of OCI card,” he said. Mr. Lobo said that people are not getting Indian citizenship for years together but our Government (BJP) has made a special provision wherein those Goans who wish to come back to India will be given Indian citizenship within three months time.

According to Micheal Lobo giving up our Indian citizenship and staying in the adverse condition in the UK is not a good idea rather Goans should come back their land. There is no guarantee of employment and future prospects in EU after the BREXIT. What is your opinion on this? Please leave your honest comments here.

  1. Although he has his own point it seems that surrendering citizenship that a person worked so hard to get is not easily relinquished just like that. Such decision must depend only on the person whether or not he will give up his visa or status.

  2. I think Michael Lobo is ignorant about the problem that Goans face in their own state. He is Calangute MLA where illegal prostitution and narcotic drug industries is rampant and is in full swing and he is doing nothing about that. Instead of creating jobs for Goans he and his government are encouraging workers from outside Goa i. e. (Nepali’North eastern states, Beharis, karnatakans) at very low salary at coastal belt and elsewhere in Goa. Goa’s Employment Exchange dept. not functioning as the Job market is controlled by MLAs. Goa Governments have failed to provide employment for Goans with decent salaries as per Goans living standard. Tourism Industry is lasts for only six months or less. Besides jobs in Goa only contract basis, No Job security. He ( Michael Lobo) is happy because Goans elected him as MLA but he has become selfish corrupt politician. Goans should not elect such backstabbers again. Whose father is sitting in EU to provide visa and work permit for Goans.? Whatever the facility is available for them they used it do away from the unemployment and lasting job. BJP and Congress should apologize Goans for not providing employment. He must research why Goans living their homeland which they love. Simply talking bullshit does not work.

  3. Mr. Lobo seems to be speaking as if he is a part of Brexit. Firstly I recommend you to tune up to BBC news to get yourself updated the fate of millions of EU people living in the united kingdom instead of jumping with happiness. Every EU citizen is safe and secure even after the referendum.

    Secondly its a shame that you are unaware of indian and other country’s immigration laws. FYI middleseast is the only region who offers employment visas because they do not have immigration settlement laws.

    Indians do not enjoy dual citizenship like how many countries enjoy therefore it is mandatory to for Goans to give up the citizenship to make up their lives in UK

    Who has told you that there are 5 families living in a house. You are welcome to visit us and we will show you the lavish lifestyle goans enjoy in UK.

    We have not given up our houses and as Goans will surely come back to where we belong. But definitely do not want to perish under corrupt and ignorant minister/MLAs like you – goat.

    Prove to the few Goans who are unable to undertake their journey to UK or dubai that your Goan government can take care of them and give them a good life.

    Don’t bullshit because you have been given a chance on this media. Mind your language and mind what you speak or you may land yourself being paralysed by the curses of goan around the world. After all they are all there for their good and build up your economy. Shameless asshole.
