Isidore Jose Rodrigues was elected as the new Raia sarpanch on Friday.
Rodrigues was elected unopposed at a meeting held at the panchayat ghar. Rodrigues promised to take up developmental works in the village and said that issues like garbage management would be given top priority.
Rodrigues and the other panch members have a seat-sharing arrangement for the post of sarpanch. Former sarpanch Xavier Fernandes who assumed the post in July 2013 resigned earlier this month, while his predecessor Romouldo Gonsalves resigned in July 2013.
