BJP’s South Goa poll campaign chief and Panchayat minister Mauvin Godinho on Friday said that coal pollution is an issue in Mormugao and his party has assured the voters of addressing it post-election.
People in Mormugao have been agitating against coal handling operations citing pollution. Godinho opined that the operations should continue, but at the same time pollution and environment concerns will have to be addressed. “Post-election, the government will adopt anti-pollution measures at the port,” he said.
Godinho informed that people raised the coal pollution issue during the campaign and demanded proper measures. He stated that the taluka also faces dust pollution emanating from the shoulder of the roads.
Exuding confidence that BJP will win in south Goa as many people joining the party, he said the party doesn’t have a Salcete mission, but it will woo people. Read More
