Mapusa: The issue of encroachment on government land involving the former sarpanch and the present panch member dominated the Tuem gram sabha held on Sunday. The villagers accused panch member Prajakta Kannaik of encroaching on land belonging to the Goa Antibiotics and Pharmaceuticals Ltd and taking up the construction work in the name of her brother.
The panchayat body informed the gram sabha that the company has filed a complaint with the panchayat about their land being encroached upon, and based on the complaint, the panchayat conducted the inspection, the panchanama was done and stop work order issued. The villagers said that the work is continuing in spite of the stop work order by the panchayat. Villager Sanjayat Raut put up the resolution, and it was passed, that a vigilance inquiry be held.
Another issue which dominated the gram sabha was the alleged illegal development of plots in ward number one of the village where villagers alleged that 70 commercial residential bungalows were being built by a developer from Delhi.
Sarpanch Ulhas Naik told the gram sabha that the panchayat has not issued any NOC or permission to the project and will undertake an inspection and initiate action in the matter.
The villagers at the meeting also said that the extension of the Tuem industrial estate is under way and that huge tracts of land belonging to locals have been acquired by the government and the work has begun. The villagers said that they are not opposed to development but they should be taken into confidence and should be paid sufficient compensation for losing their land.
