Delay in panchayat polls will impact village development

GREGORY E D'SOUZA, Siolim | JULY 03, 2022, 07:30 PM IST

The Panchayat Minister Mauvin Godinho has appointed administrators to govern the panchayats but what powers are handed to them is not very clear. The monsoon issues of drain cleaning and bush cuttings need financial approval from the BDO office. Will the BDO office sanction funds for the administrator to utilise them from the respective panchayats, wherein the Sarpanch and VP Secretary were the bank signatories? The important GPDP files need to be approved. Such delay in elections will cost the village development to be stalled till the election process is completed. Thanks to the judges of the Bombay High Court at Goa for passing the order to hold elections at the earliest.
