Villagers from Bicholim and surrounding areas have complained about the potholed road outside the newly constructed Primary Health Centre at Bicholim.
According to villagers, the road is completely broken up with potholes all over the stretch of the road, causing hardship to motorists and pedestrians.
Villagers claimed that neither the PWD nor the Sarvan-Karapur Panchayat authorities are ready to repair the road and are pointing fingers at each other. While the PWD has claimed the road falls in the jurisdiction of Sarvan Karapur Panchayat, the panchayat has insisted that the onus lies on the PWD to repair the road.
PHC Standing Committee President Arun Naik had brought the matter to the notice of PWD, after which only some rubble was dumped on the pot holes. However, the solution lasted only for a few days and the potholes have surfaced again.
Villagers have requested PWD Minister Sudin Dhavlikar to look into the matter and undertake repairs of the road.
