A few months back Herald reported about the garbage dump on the Ganeshpuri - Marna road to Siolim and the authorities reacted promptly and acted to get the garbage dump cleared. Even the GSUDA which is responsible for the Swachh Bharat Mission extended the contract. However, it looks like the Government might have delayed the payment or the contract has ended.
Such careless attitude by officials or the Government in power which speaks of good Governance and failure to keep up to the Prime Minister's flagship program, Swachh Bharat Mission supported by all Ministers and the Governor only for photoshoots is totally uncalled for. Crores of money is collected from the public to fund the Swachh Bharat Mission and but all the efforts go down the drains when the services are discontinued.
The garbage gets piled up and we see how it becomes a nuisance to the public and even the cows are now feeding on the waste instead of eating grass from the grazing land of the hills.
I request the authorities to stop the photo sessions.
You are only making a fool of yourself and cleverly pocketing the money in the name of the Swachh Bharat Mission.
