Saligao MLA Kedar Naik Explains The Situation

Speaking to reporters at an event in Verem, Naik explained that the excavation of roads in Saligao was necessitated to lay a 60 cm water pipeline from the 15 water treatment plant under construction at Pilerne/Calangute to Saligao.

“Potholes have developed on these roads. The PWD has already started filling these potholes and I have advised the PWD to put rubble in the potholes so that potholes do not develop again,” said Naik.

“Due to the election code of conduct, work to fill potholes and hot mixing of roads could not be undertaken. I have already taken steps to hot mix these roads once the monsoon is over. Water is also important for residents of Saligao and so, priority was given to lay the pipeline in Saligao. Some NGOs are misguiding the people for the sake of gaining publicity.”

Stating that he is fully aware that people are facing a lot of inconvenience due to potholes, the Saligao MLA requested the people to bear some hardship for some time as hot mixing cannot be done during rains.

“I will ensure that all roads in Saligao are hot mixed after the monsoon,” assured Naik.

On the occasion, the Saligao MLA distributed saplings to residents of Verem.
