Goa Chief Minister Digamber Kamat has said that a divine hand was guiding him in the governance which is helping him overcome the obstacles.
Kamat, in a booklet released by the state government on the completion of three years, said, "I am conscious of the fact that the divine hand is guiding me to fulfil my life mission of service to fellowmen and helping me overcome obstacles in my path."
The Chief Minister has faced two major revolts during last three years of governance when its coalition ally - NCP, along with supporting legislators raised banner of discontent against him. The revolt was calmed down by intervention of Congress and NCP high commands.
"There is a feeling that much more could have been accomplished had there been a totally favourable ambience," Kamat said in the booklet 'Golden Glow,' released on Monday.
When questioned on what was the non-favourable ambience, Kamat avoided a direct answer.
"I mean I could have done better. I feel, I could have done better which I am trying to do in future," he said.
Kamat said some areas of concern and challenges are decline in agrarian economy and making agriculture an economically viable proposition.
"Existence of unemployment and underemployment, rising migration, slums and related social issues, solid waste management, disposal issues, coverage of sewerage and sanitation facilities, sustainable development with environmental protection and adequate availability of financial resources are the challenges faced by government," he said.
