Carmona locals met the Director of Panchayats in Panjim on Friday, along with the BDO and secretary. They were accompanied by Benaulim MLA Benjamin Silva.

The Panchayat Director had called for this second meeting with the villagers and the MLA after they gathered in large numbers on Thursday, to discuss the villagers’ grievances, the panchayat’s decision to grant the construction licence to Rahejas whilst ignoring the people’s objections, and glaring discrepancies in the panchayat files, part of which has been confirmed by the inspection report of the Town and Country Planning Department (TCP).

Elections on October 21st

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.
