Development Works Not Being Cleared By Salcete BDO

A discussion on the delay of clearing development proposals for Telaulim village panchayat by the Salcete block development office (BDO) took place at the gram sabha, revealed Telaulim sarpanch Maurice Carneiro.

Carneiro said “Telaulim village panchayat had received funds of Rs 5 lakh from the XIV commission with an additional amount of Rs 66 lakh collected through taxes, but proposals to undertake development works in the village have led to nothing, as the files are yet to be cleared by the Salcete BDO. Despite numerous resolutions passed by the panchayat, the BDO isn’t assisting us with the engineer from the department and isn’t responding to our calls”. – TOI
