Briefing the media, Mickky said though he is not against  road blockade, such blockades is not a solution to the problem facing  the people and motorists. 
“After the tragic accident on the Verna  bypass which claimed two lives, I immediately called up Chief Minister  Manohar Parrikar and other senior PWD officials, who have assured to  take necessary action on the question of erecting the speed breakers,” he  said.  
Saying that road blockade is not a solution to the problem,  the outgoing Nuvem MLA said that such action only affects the public at  large, including office goers and even patients being transported to hospitals.
