Pale: BJP created a history in chief minister Pramod Sawant’s Pale-Kothambi village panchayat after first time getting elected its Sarpanch on this important body in the Sankhalim Assembly constituency.
Prashila Gaude was elected unopposed in this village panchayat on Monday with all the eight panch members voting for her. This is for the first time that BJP has its leader elected as Sarpanch of this panchayat.
Party sources claimed that BJP leader Deepraj Prabhu was instrumental in getting all the panch members together in this panchayat, which is a crucial body in Assembly constituency of Sawant.
“We had decided to get together for the sake of panchayat without fighting amongst each other,” said Mahesh Gawas, one of the panch member. He said that this event will strengthen the hands of Sawant.
Newly elected Sarpanch Prashila Gaude said that she would be working for the development of village under the leadership of Sawant, keeping aside the political affiliations of each of the panch members.
