CANACONA: Ministers came in for fire at Agonda Gram Sabha over the dilapidated roads in the village. The gram sabha members on Sunday gave a stern warning that if the dilapidated internal village roads are not repaired and hot-mixed before the next gram sabha, then they would resort to stir. Incidentally, the next gram sabha will be held somewhere in the first or second week of January, 2011.
Alleging mass illegalities at village coast, members raised a point saying some shacks have also commenced their tourism activities without licences and demanded total survey of the coastal areas by the village body.  Sarpanch Milagrinha Fernandes agreed to conduct a survey of the village coast and stated that the local body has not yet issued a single seasonal license.
Residents from one side of the coastal area complained about the erratic water supply practices and at times are forced to go without water for as many as 15 days, even during monsoon when availability of water is ample in concerned reservoirs.
The issue of tourists’ taxis from neighbouring Khola village causing business conflicts in the village was also raised. The sarpanch however remained non-committal on the issue saying: “Our efforts to acquire suitable land for a taxi stand is still not realized as land acquisition is in progress.” Govind Zaranvkar was present as BDO observer, while Secretary Mahale, Deputy Sarpanch Gulshan Guru Bandekar, Panchas Tipu Pagi and Jovi Fernandes were also present amongst others.
