Development is being pursued at any cost affecting the day to day lives of the people, trampling their interests and ignoring their problems.
The traffic snarls along the Agassaim-Verna stretch particularly on the Zuari Bridge and at the Cortalim Circle is a case in point which is the result of the careless and negligent attitude of our politicians. They should have learnt from the traffic jams and snarls at Porvorim during the ongoing construction of the third Mandovi Bridge.
It seems that our politicians have turned a blind eye to these problems? The same irresponsible approach is being adopted for the new Zuari Bridge which is the cause of the problems that are witnessed along the Verna-Agassaim stretch.
This shows no advanced planning which would have alleviated the problems to a large extent. It is time that our government takes stock of the situation for any development well in advance and tackles it. The present modus operandi is to ride on people’s backs until the limits of patience and tolerance are crossed. [H]
