PANAJI: Soon after being elected unopposed as North Goa ZP Chairperson, Sidhesh Shripad Naik today said that he will approach the state government to ensure more powers and funds are given to the ZP body.
Union Minister Shripad Naik’s son Sidhesh was today elected unopposed as the chairperson of the North goa Zilla panchayat.
“I will approach the state government to ensure more powers and funds are given to the ZP body; I have had the support of my party and all the ZP members,” said Naik.
He further said that he would also take the ZP Bhavan project further as demanded.
“All the constituencies will see a uniform development; I will get to serve the people of my constituency. All works related to ZP will be done,” he added.
BJP had filed the nomination of Siddesh Shripad Naik as the party candidate for the post of North Goa Zilla Panchayat Chairperson.
The post had gone vacant after Kartik Kudnekar resigned from the post in the second week of April 2022.
As BJP dominates NGPDA with nearly 18 ZP members, Siddhesh was elected unopposed.
“The elections for the post were held on May 9. Bye-elections for the 3 vacant ZP seats will be held along with Panchayat elections,” said BJP state President Sadanand Shet Tanavade.
