PWD Minister Nilesh Cabral welcomes project
Welcoming the new technology introduced by PWD Minister Nilesh Cabral, the Fatorda MLA said this will go a long way in completing the North main trunk line project at the earliest. “When I had stitched an alliance with the BJP in 2017, one of the conditions I insisted on was that the government sanction funds to replace the damaged and dilapidated Main Trunk line costing over ₹100 crore. This new technology, I hope, will meet the requirements and help commission the line at the earliest,” he said.
He added: “People of Fatorda have suffered for a long time because of the damaged North main sewerage trunk line. I hope that this technology will help in completing the project at the earliest.”
