Posted by: nt November 10, 2018 in Goa News
MARGAO: Members of Cavelossim village forum on Friday expressed disillusionment over the panchayat urging the forum not to make them party to court cases as it was resulting in a lot of expenditure.
Speaking to media persons, forum president Iris Passanha said, “It is wrong on the part of the panchayat to point fingers at the forum. It is the duty of the panchayat to take action against illegalities and if the panchayat had to take action, there would have been no need for us to move
From issues of sewage discharge into water bodies, unloading of fish along riverside to illegal landfilling in NDZ area, the forum had taken up all these issues with authorities including the BDO, director of panchayats and the panchayat itself, but nothing happened, the forum claimed.
“We’ve already complained to so many authorities but there has been no action. Hence, we have moved court or the NGT and we have not lost any case. Many times the NGT issues orders, but they are not followed by government authorities,” alleged CVF member Joe Gomes.
During the recently held gram sabha, the sarpanch had urged the forum not to make the panchayat party to the cases in court. The forum however contested this stand saying the cases would not have reached the court had the panchayat taken timely action against the forum’s complaints.
