Goa Panchayat Minister Mauvin Godinho has said that state government is providing special grants to village panchayat to tackle the garbage menace.
In a written reply to a questioned tabled by Congress MLA Dayanand Sopte on Thursday in the Goa Legislative Assembly, Godinho said, “Government is providing special grants to Village Pancahayt to tackle the garbage menace.”
“Presently Village Panchayats are collecting door to door garbage by engaging labourers or contractors and send the non bio-degradable garbage to the Goa waste Management, Saligao, Bardez – Goa for its treatment or disposal. The Bio – Degradable is required to be treated by Pancahayts for which Assistance/ Technical help is given to,” Godinho further stated.
He said special grants had been provided to solve the garbage problem in Villages.
