Cortalim: Alina Saldanha, MLA of Cortalim constituency launched works worth Rs. 25 lakhs in the constituency through the Water Resources Department on 8th of November, 2018, in the presence of Shri. Rameshwar Sawant, Assistant engineer, Shri. Sandesh Kavlekar, Junior engineer of Water Resource department, Shri. Narayan Naik, Panch V.P. Sancoale, Smt. Nandita Dayyal, Panch V.P. Velsao-Pale-Issorcim and the locals of the Villages.
The works launched include improvement of the nallah near Mohan Naik’s house at Shindolim in Sancoale and improvement of the nallah near Thereza Fernandes house, at Hollant in Issorcim. Both these works were of dire importance as the banks of these Nallahs were eroded during the monsoon.
Speaking on the occasion Mrs. Saldanha said that she was happy that the works on these have started. The banks of these nallahs have eroded during the monsoon and as a result the overflowing water was causing flooding in the adjacent properties and houses
Mrs. Saldanha further said that there are lot of developmental works which will start shortly in almost all the villages of Cortalim constituency under PWD as our goal is to ensure that every need of the villagers is taken care of.
Shri. Gaurish Borkar a villager from Shindolim while thanking the MLA said that though these work look small they are of great importance and the MLA understands the need the of hour and has therefore focused to work for the people of Cortalim constituency. ‘Nobody in the past looked into the improvement of these nallahs but our MLA did’ and he also cited an example of one nallah at Sancoale of which the works were carried out last year and has benefited the people of the area a lot.
