Porvorim: Former Deputy chief minister Vijai Sardesai sought clarity from  Pramod Sawant-led government whether they will continue with the policy in Town and Country Planning Department during his tenure or it will be reviewed.

Sardesai was speaking on Demands for Grants on Town and Country Planning department during ongoing Session of State Legislative Assembly.

“I would like to know from the new minister whether there will be continuity in the policy or it will be reviewed,”  the minister said, supporting the demands, despite he being in opposition.

 “Till recently, I was minister of this department, and hence, despite being in opposition, I will not oppose the demands for grants,” he said.

Sardesai said that during his tenure as TCP minister, he had taken various decisions to save the identity of Goa and had even rejected several proposals which were objected to by the locals.

He said that he and his party would be keeping a watch on all the decisions taken by the new minister.  “There is no investors’ confidence in Goa that is because the policies are not backed by vision,” he said.

Listing out the steps he had taken after he took over the portfolio, Sardesai said that he took a progressive decision to fix one Regional Plan, weeding out entire confusion.

He said that the amendment to TCP act was made to ensure that there is no ghettoisation of Goa through illegal plotting of lands.

Sardesai said that the provision of auto DCR helped people to apply online.

“We prepared outline development plans and now there is need to have comprehensive development plans for which you will require lot of money,” he said.

For the CDP of Margao and Ponda, itself Rs five crore was required.
