Uliyargoli villagers oppose move to upgrade GP

The villagers of Uliyargoli strongly opposed the proposal recommending the upgradation of the gram panchayath into Town Municipal Corporation status along with Kaup, Majar and Mallaru.

Speaking to media persons, localite Kiran Alva said that the decision is taken without taking the villagers into confidence and in the midst of the opposition from the residents of the village. 

The upgradation of the village would snatch the rural reservation facilities, besides adding up the burden of tax. The students would also loose the reservation based on rural grounds.

The water tariff  will be added, besides telephone bill would be hiked. The farmers would also be deprived of the loan facilities and it would hamper the industrial and trade growth. He alleged that the Urban Development Minister Vinay Kumar Sorake was informed over the dissatisfaction of the villagers, however, the issue is not taken seriously.

He said a memorandum is forwarded to Deputy Commissioner over the opposition against the proposal. He added that the main occupation of the people in Uliyargoli is fishing and majority numbers reside in 3-5 cents land.

The area totally lacks the capacity to bear the responsibility of town municipality. He added a protest was held before gram panchayath questioning the decision of the gram panchayath on June 6, 2014.

The proposal was strongly opposed by the villagers in the meeting held on June 12. A special Gram Sabha was held following the demand on August 8 to discus the pros and cons of the proposal.

He accused that the district administration has not considered the appeal by the villagers. It has also ignored the Gram Sabha decision. He said the democratic set up calls for upholding the public opinion, however the tenet is ignored, he alleged.
