The role of all Carmona panchas in the Raheja project issue has come under scrutiny.Two panchayat meetings have been held since the last gram sabha, and Carmona locals are curious to know if the panchas had objected to the Raheja file at these meetings. They also want the panchas to make their stand clear in public.
The statements that former Sarpanch Lavita Dias is with the people have been taken with a pinch of salt by the locals, given her failure to attend the public meeting on September 13 after the panchayat had postponed the extraordinary gram sabha.
While the panchayat has not yet responded to the resolution copy submitted to its office and other government departments by the Carmona village committee, the villagers want to know if the panchas, besides the former sarpanch and the acting sarpanch, are supporting the people’s agitation or the panchayat’s decision to grant a construction license to Raheja.The village committee plans to seek answers from the panchayat by the end of the week and are also waiting for until the panchayat sets a date for the extraordinary gram sabha.
