Panaji MLA should not pass buck on poor state of roads

AIRES RODRIGUES, Ribandar | JULY 03, 2022, 07:30 PM IST

Having to grapple with crater ridden roads, for  the residents of Panaji constituency which includes Ribandar, the now eye wash by MLA Babush Monserrate asking the Chief Minister Pramod Sawant to order an inquiry into the hot mixing of those roads  only further rubs salt into the wounds. Monserrate was totally aware of what was going on and chose to turn a Nelson’s to that substandard hot-mixing of the roads. Instead of trying to now pass the buck, it would have been appropriate if the Panaji MLA had to put in his papers, to make way for someone honest, educated and knowledgeable to lead in transforming Panaji into a truly smart city.

After having promised that the city would not see flooding this year, it is misery all over with all those pre-monsoon works done by the Corporation of the city of Panaji  all gone down the drain. In 2019 after promising to remove the casinos from the Mandovi, Monserrate chose to further allow casinos to proliferate in the city after they agreed to hire rooms for their customers at his two Miramar hotels.
