MPT Chief Is Too Optimistic? – by Stephen Dias, Dona Paula

MPT Chief Is Too Optimistic? – by Stephen Dias, Dona Paula

The hue and cry all over Goa, about the coal pollution at Marmagoa harbour and surrounding areas of Vasco town, is a case of concern for all the residents of Vasco town, Dona Paula as well as all Goans. It will surely be polluted if the coal industry comes to Goa and that the residents of town, will suffer first due to coal pollution and people living there will get pulmonary disease, asthma, breading problems etc. if not well controlled.

May I ask this MPT chief whether he is ready to give an affidavit to the Court, saying there will be no such effects as mentioned by him in a section of press today ( 23.4.2017) that Pollution will be well within the norms in this Port? Now the MPT chief is planning to resume Mumbai-Goa cruise by October this year, and also seeking to get back old ferry services from Baina (Vasco) to Dona Paula which we all know it was a fancy proposal because earlier it has been discontinued on various technical reasons and now whether he is so optimistic that this service will come to existence is a million dollar question for us
