Panaji: Revolutionary Goans team from Saligao took up cleaning and sanitizing of the Ganpati Visarjan Pond at Guirim ahead of visarjan.
Revolutionary Goans leader from Saligao, Rohan Kalangutkar pointed that Goa is slowly losing its natural water resources.
“There is an urgent need to manage and develop water resources not only in Guirim but across the state. In spite of being blessed with abundant rainfall, the state experiences water scarcity. Due to increasing population, climate change and pollution the use of surface water resources is reaching the optimum level,” said Rohan.
“Our government has failed miserably to protect and preserve our natural resources. At the grassroots level, the panchayat bodies too have neglected the same and this has caused immense damage to our ecosystem. It is time to work towards restoring and preserving the existing water bodies,” he added.
One can recall that last month the Revolutionary Goans team from Saligao took up cleaning and sanitizing of Ganpati Visarjan Pond at Donvaddo, Saligao.
