Telaulim: Don’t merge Konkani speaking areas of Karwar with Goa

 

The gram sabha of Telaulim village on Sunday opposed any move for the inclusion of Konkani speaking areas of Karwar and Supa into Goa.
At the meeting held on Sunday, gram sabha members demanded a total stop to filling of agricultural fields in the villages. Members emphasized on the need to protect and preserve the agricultural fields. 
Sarpanch Duarte Pires said that the gram sabha members made a forceful plea to the Panchayat to ensure that there’s no further land filling of agricultural fields in the village. 
He pointed out that the gram sabha discussed various developmental proposals concerning the village.
The gram sabah also discussed the issue of disposal of plastic waste and bottles. After much discussion, it was decided to engage a private agency for the collection of plastic waste, paper and glass bottles, the sarpanch informed. [H]
