The delegation has said that pending finalization of the coastal zone management plan (CZMP) of the State no public hearing on marina project be held.

Chief Minister is expected to take a call the demand by Wednesday evening, in consultation with North Goa Collector and officials of Goa State Pollution Control Board (GSPCB).
