Panaji: Gomantak Bhandari Samaji members have raised serious concern over rising number of cases of migrants obtaining OBC certificates by changing their names.
The samaj members along with President Ashok Naik and former BJP MLA Dayanand Mandrekar called on Chief Minister Pramod Sawant seeking his immediate intervention in the matter.
“Such cases are on rise in Bardez, Salcete and Mormugao where there is large inflow of migrants. We have requested CM to investigate. This is a serious matter and cannot be ignored,” Naik said.
Later, Mandrekar also raised apprehensions about people obtaining bogus OBC certificates and even contesting elections at Panchayat, municipality level.
