Rachol passes budget amidst confusion over new VP ghar

Margao: The Rachol gram sabha passed a budget of Rs 55 lakh for 2016-17 amidst chaos over the venue of the gram sabha, which was held at the new panchayat ghar.
Sarpanch Joseph Vaz also informed that the panchayat was expecting Rs 20 lakh under the ST scheme given that the population of the village is predominately ST.
There was also a major debate regarding the gram sabha venue. It may be recalled that there has been a long-standing dispute among a section of the villagers and the sarpanch regarding the shifting of the panchayat to its new premises.
Those opposing the move have felt that the gram sabha should have been held at the old panchayat ghar.
The villagers questioned why they were not informed about the inauguration and pointed out that they were told it would only be a blessing of the office, but the plaque stated that the panchayat ghar was inaugurated.[H]
