Cong alleges scam in Malim fishing jetty operations
By Heraldgoa 02-Aug-2019
President of Porvorim Block Congress Committee, Adv Shankar Phadte alleged that the fishing mafia at Malim jetty is mismanaging the facilities at the jetty including the fish vending outlets, fuel pump, office spaces and sheds. “The scam in the operation of Malim fishing jetty runs into crores of rupees and was exposed in 2015 by Goan fishermen. As a result of which they were targeted, harassed, displaced and ousted from their fishing outlets. The Malim jetty is managed by the Malim Fishermen Co-Operative Marketing Society which is allowing outsiders i.e. people from Karnataka and Tamil Nadu to operate the businesses at the jetty which belongs to the Fisheries Department. The boat owners many of whom are Portuguese nationals and businessman from Panjim and Siridao are controlling the jetty and the illegal activities here. The business place is illegally sublet to migrants and the people in control of the jetty are involved in scams,” Phadte charged.
The Porvorim Block Congress condemns the hypocrisy of the Porvorim MLA Rohan Khaunte for failing to provide relief to the local fishermen whose livelihood was at stake for all these years when he was in the cabinet. The Block claims that the MLA is responsible for the affairs at the jetty and the unfair treatment and harassment meted out to the local fishermen of Porvorim, Aldona and Saligao constituencies.
