Mapusa row resolved; Falari CP, Merlene VCP

 

Chief Minister Laxmikant Parsekar finally intervened to rescue his deputy and reach a ‘consensus’ to elect a chairperson and vice chairperson of Mapusa municipal council.

Sandip Falari will be the chairperson for the third time while Merlene D’Souza would be the vice chairperson, for the first time.

The imbroglio was resolved in a meeting of all the 16 councillors held at CM’s official Altinho residence held late tonight.

Deputy CM Francisco D’Souza, who is also the Mapusa MLA, had a tough time electing the leaders after winning 15 seats in the 16-member council.

 

Besides Falari and D’Souza, also in the race were Sudhir Kandolkar, Ryan Braganza and Roan Kavalekar.

The meeting finally decided to elect Falari and D’Souza, both councillors even in the last council, as their head and deputy.

The meeting was also attended by BJP Goa chief Vinay Tendulkar and South Goa MP Narendra Savoikar.
