“From the year 2013 Government has failed to complete the census of OBC. OBC Commission has failed in its duty to compile data thus ignoring and giving least importance to more than 50 percent of Goa’s population which comprises of OBC”, he added.

Palekar said, “The BJP government is now asking for more time to hold Panchyat elections. In its order, the HC clearly stated that the state government had postponed the Panchayat elections a fourth time”.

Adding he said, “There is no doubt that the BJP government is scared of the Panchyat elections mandate and that’s why they are looking for a variety of reasons to postpone the elections”.
