Panaji: The rising number of roads turning into death traps is reflecting on inefficiency of inexperienced PWD minister Deepak Pauskar.
In one such instance, a citizen has put up a picture of huge pothole on National Highway at Dharmapur in Navelim, which could be a cause of major accident in rains.
Despite the post on social media and whatsapp group where Pauskar is a member, the action is yet to be taken.
One of the citizen posted: Death trap on National highway at Shirlim Dharmapur (Navelim)Its high time now , we are too much tolerant to bad roads, I appeal to PWD minister Deepak Pauskar and CM Pramod Sawant to make PWD engineers responsible and accountable otherwise make them liable for negligence to provide safety to road users.
Pauskar who along with Manohar Ajgaonkar broke away from MGP to join BJP has been allotted PWD portfolio. But his experience to handle it has been creating difficulty for the people who are directly or indirectly concerned with this department.
