No-trust motion passed against Ucassaim sarpanch, deputy
Ucassaim sarpanch Rajesh Dabhale and his deputy Gauravi Madgaonkar were ousted from office through a no-confidence motion that was passed against them.
As both posts are now vacant, an administrator will be appointed to see the affairs of the panchayat till a new sarpanch and deputy are elected. The anti-corruption bureau of the directorate of vigilance had caught Dabale and panchayat secretary Uday Naik red-handed while accepting a bribe of 70,000 for issuing a construction license for building a bungalow in the village. A no-confidence motion was moved against Dabhale and his deputy Gauravi Madgaonkar last week as a fallout of the incident. [TOI]
