Goa tourism minister Rohan Khaunte upset with lack of OBC quota for panchayat polls

Tourism minister Rohan Khaunte, who is also the Porvorim MLA, lashed out at the state election commission (SEC) on Sunday, accusing it of meting out injustice to the other backward caste (OBC) community. Seeking corrective measures, Khaunte said he has conveyed his dismay to chief minister Pramod Sawant and BJP state president Sadanand Tanavade. The minister said that the OBC community cannot be ignored in the elections, but his main grouse appears to be that many of his supporters and affiliates find themselves out of the running.
