OBC ward reservation: Churchill’s men accuse Caitu of playing dirty

Margao: Benaulim MLA Churchill Alemao’s supporters have accused former legislator Caitu Silva of playing a “dirty game” in their leader’s absence by getting the reservation of wards changed in five panchayats of the constituency thereby reducing the number of wards reserved for OBCs.  They further alleged that the move was to keep the MLA’s candidates out of the fray.Vide a corrigendum issued, the OBC reservation for Ward Nos 2 and 6 in Colva panchayat has been cancelled and similarly the OBC reservation in Ward Nos 7 and 10 of Cana Benaulim has been cancelled. Thus Colva will have only two wards reserved for OBCs instead of four while Cana Benaulim will have only one reserved for OBCs instead of three.
In Varca panchayat, the reservation of Ward No 6 for OBC has been cancelled. However, ward No 8 will be reserved for ladies. Hence in Colva the lone ward will be reserved for OBC and that too for a woman.The OBC reservation of Ward No 3 in the panchayats of Carmona and Cavelossim has been cancelled however, both wards continue to be reserved for ladies. Thus in Carmona only one ward will be reserved for OBCs instead of two while in Cavelossim only two wards will be reserved for OBCs instead of three.In Raia, the reservation of Ward No. 4 for OBCs has been cancelled thus leaving only one ward reserved for OBCs instead of two.
