PANJIM: Carmona Villagers Forum, along with local MLA Caetano (Caitu) Silva on Friday met the Director of Panchayats demanding immediate election to the post of sarpanch of the village. The villagers said they were unable to again pass a resolution to revoke the licences of the Raheja project in the absence of the sarpanch. 

The Panchayats director has ordered that the election to the post of sarpanch be held on October 21 and has asked the panchayat secretary to hold an ordinary meeting before the election.

Speaking to Herald Allwyn Jorge of the Carmona Villagers Forum said that the manipulations which were deliberately done while issuing licences were brought to the notice of Panchayats director Gurudas Pilarnekar.

The villagers’ forum also submitted a written memorandum to Pilarnekar signed by over 500 villagers demanding the election of the sarpanch on a priority. Villagers said that soon after the election of the sarpanch in the special meeting they would force the elected body to revoke the licences issued to Raheja for the project.

Carmona villagers have been opposing the Raheja project in the village. 


Silva said he is with the villagers and won’t allow such projects against will of the people.
