NGO ‘People for Mopa’ held a public meeting in Mapusa to garner support for the Mopa airport project. This is the first meeting the NGO held outside Pernem. The NGO has held meetings in almost all villages in the Pernem Taluka which were well-attended and supported by many people.
“Few elements from South Goa are misguiding people over the Mopa airport project by spreading wrong information. In reality, Mopa is the need of the hour and it’s high time people come in large numbers to support the project,” said Mapusa Municipal Council (MMC) chairperson Sandip Fulari at the meeting.
The meeting was attended by former MMC chairperson Sudhir Kandolkar, Shiv Sena Goa chief Ramesh Naik, People for Mopa Bardez convenor Eknath Mhapsekar and a large number of people.
