The delegation was represented by BJP St Cruz MLA Tony Fernandes, Cortalim MLA Alina Saldanha and Congress Curtorim MLA Alexio Reginaldo Lourenco along with activists like Rama Kankonkar and locals.

Speaking to reporters after meeting, Saldanha said that the delegation has demanded that pending finalization of CZMP, the scheduled public hearing be postponed.
