If the police fails to do so, I will protest on the road against my own government,” warned Cabral. r“CCTVs cameras have been installed at various places at Curchorem and we have learnt that CCTVs are non-functioning when the vandalism incidents took place. The government should look after maintenance of the CCTVs,” demanded Cabral. rCabral, however, appealed to the people to repose their faith in law enforcement agencies. “Our police is capable of solving the issue,” he said. rCurchorem councillor Vishwas Sawant, Assolda Sarpanch Manohar Naik, Curchorem BJP Mandal president Ashok Naik, secretary Rajendra Vast, Agustine Fernandes and others were present during the news conference.
