Fal Dessai, chairman of Somnath Dairy Society in Adnem has taken over as new chairman of Goa Dairy after being elected unopposed on Tuesday, reports TOI.
The post was vacant after the ouster of former chairman Madhav Sahakari. Goa Dairy is a federation of about 165-village-level-milk-collection-societies.
These co-op societies elect 12 directors on the board of Goa State Cooperative Milk Producers’ Union.
The new chairman has said that he will work in favour of the farmers. He said as he is holding the post of chairman for the first time, he has to study the issues first.
The allegations of the scams leveled by the former chairman Sahakari against the managing director has backfired against Sahakari, resulting in his ousting from the post.
