PRESS RELEASE

VILLAGERS IN TIRACOL UNDER ATTACK

The Golf Course Project by M/s Leading Hotels Private Ltd. in Tiracol, Keri Village has been opposed by the villagers of Tiracol since it displaces the locals from their ancestral place, disrupts their sustainable livelihoods and destroys the rich biodiversity of the area. 

The project is envisaged in a total area spreading to 342 acres of land displacing families from Tiracol who fought to keep their hamlet a part of Goa after liberation. The people have for centuries worked and lived happily on the cashew plantations, which is their main source of livelihood. The rich Tiracol river resource of fish has substantiated the livelihood of the villagers. 

Golden Verse

Atam amchea ekleach Devak ani Tarokak vakhannum-ia! Tumchea bhavarthantlim tumi koddsorona zaunk tumkam samballunk Taka podvi asa; toxench Aplea mhoimevont mukhamolla mukhar tumkam niropradhi korun ani sontosan bhôrun haddunk Taka tank asa.
