New Margao Municipal Council vice-chief to be picked on Apr 2


The elections to the post of Margao Municipal Council (MMC) vice chairperson will be held on April 2.
The post fell vacant after councillor Pratima Coutinho resigned on March 17. Coutinho stated that she had decided to step down in keeping with the commitment given to the councillors that she and chairperson Arthur D'Silva would occupy the position for only 11 months.
Commenting on the demand for the MMC chief's resignation, D'Silva said, "This is not my private property and if the councilors ask to me step down I will. It is because of the councillors only that I am sitting here," said D'Silva about the demand of a few councilors that he steps down as the MMC chairperson. [TOI]
