We want both Dabolim as well as Mopa. Dabolim will be retained,” he asserted. \rAllaying apprehensions of the people on Mopa airport, Mauvin said that local youth will get good jobs once the airport starts operations. \r“Our local youth will be trained to take up attractive jobs at the new airport. The new airport will be an engine of growth in the state,” he said \r“When these big projects take concrete shape, Goa will change within 4-5 years and become a progressive Goa. If people have any apprehensions on any project, there are agencies such as the Goa State Pollution Control Board to take care of pollution and damage to the environment. But, we cannot stop development,” he said, while referring to the infrastructural projects underway in the state, including the two new bridges across the river Mandovi and Zuari.
