Panaji: The Panaji municipal market scam seems to have returned to haunt the Corporation of the City of Panaji (CCP), with its former Mayor demanding inquiry into the alleged irregularities.

Ex Mayor Surendra Furtado in a letter to Chief Secretary IAS Dharmendra Sharma has demanded inquiry into the irregularities in the municipal market scam and so also into the false affidavit filed before High Court by former Commissioner Deepak Desai in regards with sealing of illegal shops in the market.

Furtado informed that Desai had filed a false affidavit in 2017 before High Court stating that he had sealed 22 CCP shops in the municipal market and that they are in the custody of CCP. Pointing to an RTI  reply, attached with the letter, Furtado said that the shops were never sealed.

 “I earnestly request you to kindly order an inquiry into the irregularities in the new municipal market vis-z-vis the false affidavit filed by the ex Commissioner Desai,” he demanded.

He further demanded that action to dispose off the cases of illegal occupation of the shops in the market be expedited, which are currently being transferred to additional collector North Goa under the Public Premises Act and to immediately sign leave and license agreements with the legal tenants.

Furtado has also requested government to appoint a Special Officer to sort out the problems of Municipal market.
