CM Visits Melavli Village, Inspects Proposed IIT Site
VALPOI: Chief Minister Dr Pramod Sawant inspected the proposed IIT campus site at Melavli, Valpoi and said villagers should form a 15-member group and meet him. He interacted with the villagers and assured them that he will sit down with people’s representatives and sort out the land ownership issue.
Dr Sawant said he was talking of 50 years development and agreed to take a group of villagers to see IIT campuses and how they had developed in India. He said final decision will be taken by taking villagers into confidence.
However, the villagers stood firm in their demand to scrap the proposed IIT project at Melavli. They are agitating against the project under the banner of Melavli Panchakroshi Gram Bachao Andolan.
