The matter regarding a misplaced/non-functional street lamp fixture over an electricity pole near Ganganath Shopee at Varkhandem in Ponda was published on this page on January 21. Subsequently on January 22, the fixture was removed by the Electricity Department.
For almost 15 consecutive days (ie from January 22 to February 5), the much needed fixture over this particular electricity pole was found missing.
However on Wednesday February 6, a tubelight was installed at this spot. Due to such a positive step on the part of the Electricity Department, motorists and pedestrians would now receive illumination on the road while proceeding along this strategic route during late evening and night.
I am thankful to the Electricity Department for initiating favorable action in the interest of public. I also take this opportunity to thank the ‘Citizen Herald’ team for publishing this important post in the interest of motorists and pedestrians.
