Panaji, Aug 15 (UNI) Goa Chief Minister Digambar Kamat today said the state government is contemplating to set up an independent law commission and a human rights commission soon.

Addressing the Independence Day parade at the Old Secretariat complex, Mr Kamat said many laws in the state needed clarity and reforms and hence he had proposed to set up an independent law commission for the state.

Goa, he said, should have its own human rights commission on the lines of 17 other states in the country to ensure that this international tourist destination dealt strictly with reports of any human rights violations.

Enumerating various developments the state had achieved, the chief minister indicated that he would announce Goa's own education policy soon.

The state, he said, was keen to give more thrust on education as also on health. It would soon introduce 15 well equipped ambulances in the state to attend to emergency calls besides pressing into service more mobile clinics.

He also referred to introducing six vehicles with essential commodities in rural areas, which will sell the commodities at below market prices to the villagers.

Calling for peoples participation in the governments endeavour for development of the state, he said India was poised to become a super power by the year 2020.

He also congratulated ace shooter Abhinav Bindra who made a history in the ongoing Olympics in Beijing by winning gold in the 10m Air Rifle event.
