MARGAO

Close to his house along the Abade Faria road, Margao Municipal Council sanitary officials were working overtime to clean-up the area. 
A truck and manpower was stationed meters away from the house to lift tons of waste dumped along the roadside.   
The old market circle has been decorated with flags of India and Portugal and the photographs of the Portuguese Prime Minister.   
This is the second time that Antonio Costa will be visiting his ancestral home 
in Margao. The first time when he had come some years ago, he was part of an official delegation.   
There’s no official engagement of the Portuguese Prime Minister in the commercial capital and his visit to his home is likely to be a strict private affair. 
His cousin Annarinah said the Portuguese Prime Minister is expected to arrive around 11 am on Thursday and will have lunch with the family members at his ancestral house.   
Sources said that only close family members, including Annarinha, her mother, husband and children will dine with Antonio Costa during his visit to the house.
