Curchorem: The Curchorem Congress Block Committee on Monday charged that the reservation for the Curchorem Cacora Municipal polls has been done as per whims and fancies of the government and BJP and not on what public demands.
“It’s injustice done to those who work hard in their ward to serve people,” said Congress block committee president Pushkal Sawant.
He further said that the people cannot except fair decision from this government.
“The reservation is done according to the local politicians’s selfish interest rather then what people wants in their wards and whom they want to choose,” he said.

“Today democratic rights of expression is totally suppressed in Curchorem constituency. It’s seems like there is a monopoly adopted and followed in Curchorem,” he said.
