Govt blocking MMC tender on Sonsoddo Waste Treatment Plant – Michael Lobo



The minister for Waste Management Mr Michael Lobo today hit out at the Urban Development Ministry for their inaction in pending approvals for the Sonsoddo Waste Treatment Plant, and insisted that public utilities like waste disposal must remain above politics, insinuating that these approvals are not forthcoming because both Margao and Fatorda are represented by opposition MLAs. “The money is put up by the MMC, we’ve already approved the technology, but the Urban Development Ministry is sitting on it”. Incidentally, the Chief Minister Dr Pramod Sawant is holding the charge as minister for Urban Development, and these questions seem to be directed at him. “The waste is generated by the constituency and it has to be treated. I’m requesting do not do politics here” he said.
