MARGAO: Curtorim, which is rich in natural biodiversity, is facing problems in disposing off the garbage strewn along the roadside. The constituency which has 5 panchayats has now gone ahead and demanded land within Sonsoddo for these villages. 

The constituency has Loutolim, Camurlim, Raia, Rachol and Curtorim panchayats along with 2 wards of MMC in the constituency. Camurlim sarpanch Ashwinkumar Naik, in a video recorded message to the Chief Minister said, "Part of the Sonsoddo area falls in the Curtorim constituency. The villages around take all the stink, water discharge and health hazard from Sonsoddo but there is no benefit to the panchayats," the Sarpanch complained. 

The sarpanch has urged Curtorim MLA Aleixo Reginaldo Lourenco to take up the issue in the Assembly and get a treatment facility within the Sonsoddo area. 

"The garbage from all four panchayats if taken at the Sonsodo will save cost, effort and in turn the exercise will be effective. The Chief Minister has to intervene and make sure that these panchayats get a project at the Sonsodo," said Naik. 

Curtorkars complain that garbage gets strewn all over the sides of Coleam-Dongor in Raia and there is no vigil on these black spots. While some criticised the delay by the panchayats to designate land for garbage disposal, some said the absence of facilities in villages is resulting in the garbage being strewn on roadsides of these villages. 

J Santana Rodrigues of the Curtorim said, "Some locations which lead to the places touristic importance are unclean. This has to come to the notice of the responsible officers dealing in solid waste management and same is the state of other villages as important as Curtorim," he claimed.
