Navelim locals oppose bridge

In an attempt to contradict statements made by former Navelim MLA Churchill Alemao that the people of Benaulim wanted work on the Benaulim-Sinquetim bridge to continue, a group of Benaulim residents voiced their opposition to the bridge on Monday.

Bairon Rodrigues, while addressing mediapersons on Monday, said that the government should scrap the project and demanded a probe by the government to find out if there was a scam given the high cost.

The locals also further expressed their confidence that the Navelim MLA Avertano Furtado, Benaulim MLA Caitu D'Silva and chief minister Manohar Parrikar would agree to their demands. [TOI]
