The Rumdamol-Davorlim villagers are pinning their hopes on the government to construct a health centre in their village.
Sarpanch Sofia Shaikh said, “We have placed our demand with the government since 2012. The village is in need of a health centre. In the absence of a health centre, the villagers have to rush to the Hospicio Hospital in Margao for treatment. I am confident that the government will provide the health centre as early as possible”.
Shaikh who tendered her resignation from the post of sarpanch on Tuesday, which is under consideration, said, “The Goa Housing Board has given the land for construction of a health centre. I had forwarded the proposal to the government. I have also written to the Chief Minister’s office and the department of Health. I hope very soon, the government will consider our genuine demand,’’ she added.
Sources said that the former MLA Avertano Furtado had made attempts to have a health centre in the village, but could not succeed. “We are going to meet the Health Minister again in this regard,’’ said panch Narendra Naik.
