Why has Mapusa Tar bridge been demolished if a temporary structure has come in its place?



Slamming the Mapusa MLA Joshua D’souza for his last minute shoddy work AAP Goa Convenor Rahul Mhambre asked why the Mapusa Tar Bridge demolished when a temporary bridge had to be put up. Blaming Mapusa’s traffic problems on the failures of Joshua D’souza Mhambre asked where was the Master plan for Mapusa?

Aam Aadmi Party’s Goa convener Rahul Mhambre expressed his indignation over the demolition of a bridge over the Mhapsa Tar river and construction of a temporary bridge at this place without any planning. He pointed out that the slow pace of work on the bridge and the collapse of the old bridge were causing inconvenience to the people and accidents were also taking place due to the narrowness of the bridge.

Mhambre has criticized MLA Joshua D’Souza over the issue of a temporary bridge at Mapusa. Mhambre said the bridge was deliberately demolished and rebuilt when there was no need. “It’s just a stunt by Joshua to make people think he’s got something to do before the election,” Mhambre said.

In this regard, AAP’s Goa Convenor along with residents from Mapusa tried to meet Mayor Shubhangi Vaigankar but She did not come to the Municipal Corporation office.

“Mapusa is suffering due to the haphazard planning of and failure of its MLA Joshua D’souza. Where is the Master plan? Where is the vision? Joshua bab is only trying to make it look like he has worked as the election is close by but Mapusa residents wont be fooled” said AAP Goa Convenor Rahul Mhambre


  1. Corrupt Government Officials are the reason for Goans sufferings. They take months or even years to pass one simple file of Goans, which require only few days to pass. Without bribes they even not looking at the Goans face, forget about completing the file of the Goans. Whenever Goans goes to the office, next chair employee says that he or She is on outdoor work. But actually he or she is at home or doing some of its personal business outdoor. They must be punctual and if he or she is gone out or on leave then there must be a replacement to sign or work on his or her behalf.
