Tiatrist elected Guirdolim sarpanch
The BJP has gained control of the Guiridolim panchayat in Salcete, following the election of Milagres Gonsalves as the sarpanch of the village on Thursday.
Gonsalves was elected unopposed in the seven-member panchayat body, as his was the lone nomination for the post. Presiding officer Ashish Patnekar made an official declaration to that effect at the meeting held on Thursday.
The election for the sarpanch was necessitated following the resignation of Vincy Pixote from the post last month ahead of the no-confidence motion moved against him by his fellow panchayat members.
Gonsalves, popularly known as Milagres de Chandor, is a noted tiatrist. He is the vice president of the non-stop tiatrist sanstha and the executive member of the tiatr academy of Goa.
A member of the executive body of the state BJP, Gonsalves has been elected to the Guiridolim panchayat for three consecutive terms. [TOI]
