The garbage issue dominated the Parra gram sabha on Sunday. Villagers suggested that the village panchayat must ban the sale of plastic bags in business establishments in order to tackle the menace in the village.
Sarpanch Delilah Lobo informed the gram sabha that the panchayat has received a letter from the waste management plant to instruct the garbage contractor to segregate plastic depending on its microns. Delilah requested the Parra comunidade to allot a small piece of land for this purpose.
Villagers suggested that residents should be educated and awareness should be created to reduce the work of the garbage contractor. They said that atleast four bins must be given to segregate garbage.
A local resident Benedict raised the issue of plastic waste lying along the roadside and why the waste was not cleared. The sarpanch said that at present the panchayat has four labourers and soon another two more will be hired to clear plastic thrown along the roadside.
Chandu Harmalkar a panch from Almeida gama waddo raised the issue about the nullahs and drains that were not desilted last year. He said due to this there was flooding in the area. The sarpanch told the gram sabha that this year all nullahs and drains in all wards will be cleaned.
The sarpanch told the gram sabha that the new panchayat ghar plans are put up on the notice board and notices will be served to all shops operating in the panchayat building to shift. She said that even the panchayat office will be shifted to a nearby location so that it is convenient for villagers. She informed the members that the construction of the panchayat ghar will be carried out by GSIDC.
The sarpanch informed the gram sabha that a solar cooking competition will be held on May 4, while the following Sunday, a career guidance talk will be given to students of SSC and HSSC.
