The farming community and environmentalists in Sanguem decided to oppose the proposed IIT project in their farmlands at Cotarli village, as soon as they became aware of a fresh site inspection by Sanguem MLA and Minister for Social Welfare Subhash Phaldessai and other officials.

They are upset as a vast portion of government land, now proposed to be acquired, is under paddy cultivation and includes greenery and natural water bodies.

“It was for these very reasons we had opposed the proposed IIT project at Sanguem the last time. The opposition will continue with the same fervour as it had been a year ago,” said a farmer, Pedro Cruz.
