Airport, garbage in focus at Telaulim


"No to Mopa" echoed at the gram sabha of the Telaulim village pachayat on Sunday, as villagers voiced their strong opposition to the proposed airport in North Goa. A unanimous resolution in that regard was adopted at the gram sabha.
Voicing their concern over the large scale conversion of agricultural lands to facilitate construction projects in the village, gram sabha members demanded that henceforth, no fields in the village will be allowed to be converted into non-agricultural lands without the approval of the gram sabha.
A resolution in that regard was unanimously adopted by the gram sabha. The budget estimates for the year 2013-14 were also placed before the gram sabha. The issue of garbage menace also came to the fore with villagers demanding that the panchayat take immediate steps to resolve the issue.
A ward development committee was also constituted at the meeting. [TOI]
