The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) today submitted a memorandum to Chief Town Planner (CTP) Rajesh Naik demanding to keep Regional Plan 2021 in abeyance.

AAP delegation led by convener Elvis Gomes has asked TCP to initiate process to draft RP31 taking people into confidence.

Speaking to reporter, Gomes said that we have demanded that the RP 21 be kept in abeyance and that the order dated March 28, putting the plan in operation, be revoked immediately.

“Put restrictions and prohibitions of both RP 2001 and RP21 in force and initiate process with people participation to draft RP 31,” the memorandum stated.

Party has also demanded amendment to the Town and Country Planning Act.

 “RP 2021 is unacceptable because there is no baseline data available with the government on water security, socio-cultural development, sustainable economy, environment, future challenges and sea level rise. Any long term planning prepared without baseline data is bound to have catastrophic consequences in future for the state and it’s people,” reads the memorandum.

“RP 2021 is unacceptable to the people because large areas are shown as settlement and industries in our villages including over forests slopes, sand dunes, water bodies and prime agricultural land. This is set to change the very character of Goa beyond recognition,” they said.

The party further said that RP 2021 is unacceptable as it so designed with interests of real estate speculators that makes land a commodity and will destroy the environment, economy society and social fabric of Goa irreversibly.

“All the above is done by people in power for whom making a fast buck by selling Goa is the sole

consideration. Politicians from all political parties that include BJP, CONGRESS, MGP and Goa forward are all brothers in arms and with their middlemen are only working together hand in hand to sell Goa by getting their properties converted using RP 21 which was tailor made for their interest,” they alleged.
