Congress writes to Governor, urges to withdraw ordinace of stopping Housing Building Allowance

Panaji, Sep 23 (UNI) Leader of Opposition Digambar Kamat on Wednesday submitted a Memorandum to Governor Bhagat Singh Koshyari demanding withdrawal of Ordinance number 10 of 2020 which has stopped the scheme of granting House Building Advance (HBA) to the employees of the State Government and further put a ban on them from protesting or approaching the Court of law against the decision of the Government.
Terming the Ordinance as a rude shock to the scores of Government employees who had a dream to have an affordable dwelling unit of their very own and to those who had availed the HBA at the beneficial rate of interest and had adjusted their monthly incomes to match the loan requirements besides the top up amount availed on loan, Leader of Opposition Digambar Kamat has given an illustration in his memorandum on how it will adversely affect the employees who had already availed loans.
Goa Congress President Girish Chodankar took to twitter and posted "The @INCGoa is always prompt in taking actions when it comes to safeguarding interest of Common Man including @GovtofGoa Employees. We are confident that Justice will be Done & Truth will Prevail. We have full faith in judiciary. #HighCourt #HouseBuildingAdvance hinting that Congress party has moved into action to seek justice to the victims of the government ordinance.''
