In 1996, Babu as the Madgao councillor, had succeeded in getting 135 plots for the migrant labourers who were settled in Madgao. On the road of New Railway Station near Rajendra Prasad Stadium. People then started calling it Babu Nagari.
But in 2006, after Digambar shifted over from BJP to the Congress, Madgao municipal council informally decided to call it Azad Nagari.
Now, since Digambar is in the Congress and Babu has joined BJP, suddenly on Monday night, banners of Babu Nagari appeared in the whole locality and lunch was thrown up on the occasion of Dasro. BJP deputy CM Babu Azgaonkar now alleges that Digambar had forcibly changed this name.
When Goa365 visited the locality, we got mixed reactions on the issue. Some supporting Babu Nagari while few more supporting Azad Nagari.
