Now that a very dry spell has set in Goa, it was absolutely incumbent on the government to move swiftly and ensure that on a war footing all the potholed roads across the State are restored. Those very lame excuses that the works will start in November and that by Christmas the roads will be done as Tar has to be imported is an unacceptable pretence that cannot be accepted. The horrified people of Goa have suffered enough on account of the pathetic state of the roads over the last many months and it is now time to say enough is enough.
Does this insensitive government need to be reminded that good and motorable roads is a basic fundamental right of every citizen. The authorities are also duty bound to ensure that every road is freed from that menace of straying cattle, dogs and pigs.
How many more lives will have to be lost for this government to awaken from its slumber to the reality that they can no longer abdicate from their bounden duty to ensure that all the roads in Goa are safe for one and all.
