Honda Residents Irked With Dust Pollution

Residents of Honda in Sattari taluka who are suffering due to air pollution have demanded the setting up of a pollution monitoring system in their village. The demand was made when a delegation met Goa Pollution Control Board Chairman Simon D’Souza.
Hanumant Parab, a resident of Honda who was part of the delegation disclosed that the GPCB has promised to install the system in Honda and Sonshi areas, by engaging a private firm.

However, the villagers are apprehensive about the move to involve a private firm as they fear that a private enterprise may easily fall prey to the machinations of the polluting firms even though Simon D’Souza assured that the GPCB would strictly monitor the situation and give no scope for manipulation of records.
