Carmona villagers have planned a rally in Panjim on September 2, to protest against the setting up of a mobile tower opposite the panchayat.
The villagers have planned to march to the offices of Goa State Pollution Control Board, the Director of Panchayats and Reliance Jio Infocomm Limited to protest against the Reliance Jio mobile tower set up opposite the panchayat office.
The seven-day deadline of the show cause notice expires on August 31. Villagers have questioned as to why the tower was set up without obtaining the permissions from the panchayat and as per past resolutions and their petitions to various authorities, they had resolved not to allow the tower in residential areas.
The panchayat had also taken a strong objection to the tower by issuing a show-cause notice to Reliance Jio and the owner of the building on August 20.
