St Jacinto Island residents have expressed grave concerns over their houses and church on tbe Island missing from the CZMP Plans . Angry residents later arrived at Chicalim Panchayat to meet the sarpanch Sebastian Pereira who informed them that a fresh plan would be sent to authorities with request to include the houses in the CZMP and to remove St Jacinto Island from the port limits.
A resident said that chicalim was the first panchayat to send the peoples draft on CZMP with every thing properly marked but the residebts were shocked when their houses, land and church were not reflected and the Island was put in the port limits.
