Disability Rights Association of Goa has served a three-day ultimatum to the Velsao Pale Panchayat and the Goa Coastal Zone Management Authority to demolish an illegal compound wall in CRZ zone in Velsao panchayat jurisdiction.

According to DRAG, the structure is blocking the traditional access of persons with disability and the elderly and denying them their right to livelihood.

Domingos Goes has written to DRAG stating that his neighbour has constructed an illegal compound wall which blocks their traditional access thereby denying them the right to earn their livelihood.

The illegal compound wall is also blocking the water flow during the rains.

DRAG has also condemned the President of Goencho Ramponkarancho Ekvott for exerting undue influence to harass Domingos Goes.

Domingos' mother is a traditional fisherwoman and Domingos is 75% disabled and supports his family .
