Kundaim Gram Sabha Rejects Dockyard
The Gram Sabha of Kundaim Village outright rejected the proposal to construct a dockyard at Mazowado in their village and the Sarpanch and other panchas were forced to support the resolution in the fact of nearly unanimous opposition to the project.
Villagers led by the Kundaim Nagrik Kruti Samiti took the Sarpanch to task for calling the promoters of the project for a meeting even after their project was rejected in April this year and accused the Sarpanch of seeking to garner support for the project by getting some villagers to sign a memorandum.
The villagers gave various reasons for opposing the dockyard ranging from the narrow roads of the village that would be overburdened by the increased traffic, influx of migrants who will be employed at the dockyard, locals not being employed at the dockyard and also noise pollution.
Kundaim Sarpanch Gopi Naik clarified that the promoters were called to inform them of the decision to reject their project and asserted that neither he nor any of the panchas had any interest in the project
