Charge sheet will be filed in restaurant destruction: Min
PARRA: Calangute MLA Michael Lobo said that action will be initiated and a charge sheet filed against the persons involved in destruction of the Souza Lobo property in Calangute.
“The Coastal Regulation Zone has given permission to Arora for repairs but I feel that he wants to carry out reconstruction which will be not allowed. Also we will see that Calangute Panchayat and North Goa Planning and Development Authority (NGPDA) will not grant permission for reconstruction. In case the panchayat has issued permission then it will be revoked,” said Waste Management Minister Lobo.
“I have told the owner (Arora) not to compromise on this incident. Along with assault and trespassing, this person has also threatened the wife of the Souza Lobo owner. The traditional access will not be blocked even partly,” Lobo added.
Denying allegations of political backing, Lobo said, “There is no political backing in this case. The village panchayat, locals and the MLA will stand by the owners of Souza Lobo restaurant which was established back in 1932 and is one of the oldest restaurants in Goa. Outsiders running hotels/restaurants should co-operate with locals because locals come first,” Lobo claimed.
