Goa: Migrants keen on going home find most local bodies shut

On Saturday morning, Anil Sha, a native of Uttar Pradesh, set out for the Verna panchayat with three other friends to register for return to their native state. Working as labourers in an industrial unit in Verna, the four were keen on meeting the June 14 deadline for re-registration. But the friends found the panchayat office shut as it was the second Saturday of the month.
