“The conditions at the subway are indeed disgraceful. The time has come for the authorities to plug the sewage flow and spruce up the entire structure before the re-opening of schools,” a visibly agitated TCP minister told officials of various agencies during an inspection of the subway.
The TCP minister descended at the subway along with Margao Municipal Council Chairperson Babita Prabhudesai and a host of officials representing the PWD sewerage, roads, buildings, besides officials of the electricity and MMC.
While the PWD, sewerage headed by Executive Engineer, Barros has taken up the responsibility of plugging the sewage flow into the subway, PWD Assistant Engineer, roads, Edwie Fernandes has promised to get the road under the bridge repaired with hot mix before the month.
The TCP minister directed officials of PWD, Div VIII to whitewash the entire subway structure.
While Assistant Engineer, Carlos Fernandes has been asked to ensure illumination of the subway, MMC Chief Officer was told to direct his technical officials to inspect a building and verify reports whether the building has left the sewage into the drain, which finds its way into the subway. “I want the subway to be totally spruced up since it involves the health of the student community. All these works should be ready before the school re-opens early next month,” Sardesai told the officials, while saying that he would visit the subway next week to take stock of the situation.
He also spoke to KRC senior official, Public Relations, Baban Ghatge with a request to grant the PWD the necessary NOC to whitewash the subway.
