PANAJI: Chief Minister Dr Pramod Sawant said that with enhanced efforts and vision, panchayats shall definitely be the driving force of the Swayampurna Goa mission
“With the enhanced efforts and vision, the Panchayats shall definitely be the driving force of Swayampurna Goa’s mission,” said Sawant.
He further said that the Grass-Root Democracy that they represent and perform duties shall take Villages towards the part of self-sustainability.
“Heartiest congratulations to all the Newly Elected Sarpanches and Dy. Sarpanches in all the Panchayats in Goa,” he said.
Sawant said that he was sure they shall carry out their responsibilities with devotion and care.
Although the panchayat elections were not contested on political party symbols, candidates backed by BJP MLAs and ministers had been elected across panchayats in Goa.
The BJP’s success also helps Sawant cement his position in the top job since the victory comes four months after the Assembly election that he led and won for the BJP.
The elections were held on August 10. Goa had reported a 78.70 per cent voter turnout for the panchayat elections.
