On account of the incessant rains the inspection of the Ribandar roads by officials of the Goa Human Rights Commission (GHRC) which was scheduled for today has been postponed to 1st July at 11am.
In anticipation of the inspection laborers engaged by the Imagine Panaji Smart City Development Limited (IPSCDL) descended in Ribandar early morning and were seen filling the potholes with mud and gravel.
Acting Chairman of the Goa Human Rights Commission Mr. A.D.Salkar on 24th June directed the Secretary of the GHRC along with its police investigative team to inspect the roads in Ribandar and to submit its report within seven days.
The directions were issued on the complaint filed by Adv. Aires Rodrigues that the Human Rights of the residents of Ribandar were grossly violated by the rank inaction of the authorities to the alarming state of the Ribandar roads which were dug up last month by the IPSCDL.
Adv. Rodrigues submitted to the GHRC that if there had been proper co-ordination between theIPSCDL and the PWD & BSNL the inconvenience caused to many residents of Ribandar who were left without water supply and telephone service for almost a month could have been avoided.
Adv. Rodrigues further pointed out that the restoration work of the dug up roads has not been done properly and the same will be washed away in the current monsoon bringing further misery to the local residents and the commuting public for which the IPSCDL would be solely responsible.
