The Usgao members of the Revolutionary Goans Party (RGP) have voiced their opposition to the waste treatment plant that is coming up in the village and have urged that the work on the same be stopped.

Speaking to reporters in Panaji on Monday, Rohan Naik informed that the locals have been opposing the plant because there is absolutely no record of the same with the panchayat authorities.

“We had sought information under RTI Act with respect to the plant but it is surprising that there is absolutely no documentation available with the panchayat like the DPR, waste generated, etc,” Naik informed.

“However, the work on the plant is going on at a rapid pace,” Naik informed.

Another local Gaonkar informed that they even approached the Director of Panchayats as well as the Goa Waste Management Corporation but even they do not have any information on the plant project.

Gaonkar then demanded that the panchayat should first discuss the plant project with the locals and the work stopped.

“If the panchayat fails to heed to our demand, then we will be forced to take legal recourse in the matter,” Gaonkar added.
