In what appears to be an attempt to embarrass Chief Minister Digambar Kamat, former chairperson of Margao Municipal Council Savio Coutinho has demanded that youth from Margao’s ward No. 16, which was represented by him and now his wife, be given jobs at the Dr. Francisco Luis Gomes library scheduled to be inaugurated at Navelim on Sunday.
Savio Coutinho claimed that he has been demanding jobs for youth from his ward from the day the construction work on the library began.
However, this demand appears to be an attempt to embarrass Digambar Kamat who represents the Ward No. 16 in the Legislative Assembly, primarily because Digambar did not support Savio’s wife Pratima Coutinho’s candidature at the recently held municipal elections.
Savio also questioned the government’s logic in classifying the property in which Dr. Gomes’ ancestral house is situated to Commercial Zone 2 and implied that this classification would result in demolition of the old house.
