Fatorda police on Tuesday, January 4, has summoned Margao Municipal Council (MCC) Chairperson Lyndon Pereira for questioning in connection to Goa Forward Party's road blockage protest led by Vijai Sardesai last week.
"No one was blocking the road. All the protesters were marching towards the PWD office on the side of the road. We were on our way to inquire about the Rs 22 crore development work in Fatorda," Mayor Lyndon Pereira told reporters outside the police station.
GFP and Congress affiliated councillors of MMC were present outside of the police station to show their support.
The two women, who were named in the FIR, were also called for questioning. Deputy Mayor Deepali Sawal and 13 corporators were present at the police station.
On Thursday, December 30, GFP including MMC councillors squatted near the main traffic island at Fatorda along the busy Ponda-Margao road, leading to a paralysis of road traffic.
Police in riot gear stormed a rally, removing hundreds of protesters by truck.
