The state government has appointed Deputy Speaker of the state legislative assembly and Canacona MLA Isidore
Fernandes as the chairman of the Goa Forest Development Corporation.
Under secretary (forest) Shaila Bhosle issued the order,
reconstituting the board of directors of the corporation.
The principal chief conservator of forests, the deputy
conservator of forests (south division) and the managing director of the
corporation are the
other directors of the body.
The post of the GFDC chairman had been lying vacant after
the Sanguem MLA Prasad Gaonkar resigned in September 2018, slamming
the government for failing to
support him in running the corporation.
