Road cleaning work on full-swing
Cavelossim Sarpanch Dixon Vaz has said that Cavelossim village is already feeling the heat of the India Energy Week. “Workers are in full swing in cleaning the roadside bushes preparing for the hot-mixing of the roads. Last time, the roads and electricity had received a facelift was during the BRICS summit in 2016. And now, we see the authorities are back in action ahead of the India Energy Week,” informed Dixon.
He added: “Our coastal area plays host to luxury hotels and resorts, but we still lack infrastructure. But, when such high profile events take place in our area, we get a quick facelift. Otherwise we are forgotten and left to fend for ourselves.”
