Bicholim rally to save Mhadei


A large number of youths belonging to Mhadei bachao association, Navelim-Bicholim, on Sunday took out a motorcycle rally to create awareness on the need to save Mhadei river and also to express dissatisfaction over the government's failure to take the issue seriously.
The rally was taken out in the wake of reports that Karnataka has begun work for the diversion of Mhadei water.
The rally was led by Deepesh Gawas and flagged off by Sanquelim MLA Pramod Sawant at Navelim.
The rally, which began at Navelim, made its way through Kudnem, Sanquelim, Ponda, Valpoi, Bhironda, Kumthal, Karanjale, Krishnapur and up to the Goa-Karnataka border and returned back to Navelim via Valpoi, Bhuipal, Pissurlem, Usgao and Surla. [TOI]
