In the Old Goa case hearing today, Additional panchayat Director Umakant Korkonkar said that there have been 3 intervention petitions filed, and stay granted on the matter. The next date of hearing is 19 April for hearing of reply of intervention and stay applications.
Advocate and AAP leader Amit Palekar said that after the end of his fast he had issued notice to panchayat and other authorities and added a vigilance inquiry against the authorities. He has placed an intervention petition to ensure demolition. “The panchayat has kept us in the loop at every stage. Since the Government is involved in this fraud, we don’t trust anyone. People of Goa lost faith in the Government machinery. This is a collective effort and not one individual. NGOs and we part of the petition and we will see that the matter comes to a logical end and ends with demolition,” he said.
He added that every Goan has the right to intervene in the matter.
