The Mormugao Municipal Council has officially lodged a complaint with the Vasco police against Revenue Minister Jose Philip D’Souza, accusing him of illegally grabbing municipal land at Khariwado.
It may be recalled that at the MMC meeting on Wednesday, it was unanimously decided to lodge the complaint against the minister, however, the Chief Officer begged for time on grounds that he needed to seek legal opinion.
Surprisingly, while the MMC has attached only a copy of the resolution to its complaint, supporting documents like Form D to prove the ownership of the property were not attached to the complaint. A copy of the complaint is also marked to the Governor.
Vasco Police said they will first verify the complaint and only then will register a case that too if it is required.
