Speaking to the media on the sidelines of review meeting which was held with the officials of various government departments at the BJP office at New Vaddem, Godinho said that it has been found that the people are discharging sewage into the drains.
“I have given strict instruction to the health department to disconnect the electricity and water connections of those found discharging sewage into the drains,” said Godinho.
He also said that Mormugao municipal officials have also been instructed to take strong cognizance of the sewage being discharged into the drains.
He said that he is concentrating on providing sewerage network connectivity to the people in the entire Dabolim constituency.
“I appeal to the people to provide land to set up pumping stations for sewerage network,” he said and expressed confidence of resolving the sewerage network issue in the Dabolim constituency at the earliest.
Having reviewed various development works, Godinho directed the road section of PWD to fill up the potholes during the dry spell within the next two weeks.
“We have to face the criticism from the people about the bad conditions of roads,” he said.
He further said that necessary instructions have been issued to the water and electricity department officials to provide water with high pressure and uninterrupted power supply.
“In order to augment power supply, three new transformers will be commissioned before August 2,” he said. The Minister also reviewed the Vaddem Lake beautification work, and added that the lake will be made available to the people for immersing Ganesh idols during the Ganesh celebrations.
