Grassroots democracy was practiced virtually after gram sabha

GOA: Grassroots democracy was practiced virtually after the gram sabha in a couple of villages, probably for the first time ever, was held on the internet. In Agasaim and Chodan-Madel, members logged in to participate in discussions in the former, discussions included the preparation of the gram panchayat development plan (GPDP).

The Agasaim gram sabha also reviewed and discussed support activities taken up by the panchayat during the pandemic. “We used to have gram sabhas earlier, but due to Covid-19, we had the option of an online meeting,” said panch Succorina Gonsalves. “We went ahead and conducted our first socially-distanced online gram sabha.” Tiswadi BDO Anil Dhumaskar said that the panchayat of Chodan-Madel also had an online gram sabha on Friday.
