Goa govt decides to shift IIT project out of Sattari amid protests

Jan 15, 2021 22:21 IST

The Goa govt has decided that the proposed IIT campus at Shel Melaulim village in Sattari district will be shifted to another part of the state after locals staged a large-scale protest at the village, insisting that they will not give up their land for the campus. After holding a meeting with the sarpanches and Zilla Panchayat members from the district, Chief Minister Pramod Sawant told reporters that the govt respects the sentiments of people and therefore has decided to shift the project out of Sattari. 

The CM also said that the state govt will also review the cases filed against protesters after a clash between them and the police last week during a protest.
