Process to build new market for Calangute vendors begins
Calangute Panchayat has started the process to construct a new market for vegetable vendors and others at Calangute.
The new market for the vegetable vendors and others will be constructed at an estimated cost of Rs 30 lakh and the work has commenced with the shifting of vegetable vendors in an open space.
The old market housing the vegetable vendors has been demolished and the demolition drive was supervised by Calangute Panch Joseph Sequeira, while Pascoal Soares carried out the required demolitions.
Though the demolition drive was carried out with care and restraint, a toilet belonging to the family of Calangute BJP President Gurudas Shirodker was demolished, drawing protest from the family members.
The BJP higher-ups were accordingly briefed of the matter, while Shirodker lodged a complaint with Calangute Police Station. [H]
