Calangute: Water resources minister (WRD) minister Subhash Shirodkar on Monday said 150 ponds, lakes, tanks and other water bodies will be revitalised as part of the Central government’s ‘Amrut Sarovar’ initiative.
“PM Narendra Modi has told all WRD ministers to redevelop all water bodies in our states as part of the ‘Amrut Sarovar’ initiative in the country. In Goa, we will take up 75 ponds in North Goa and 75 in South Goa, 150 big and small water bodies which we will revitalise in the next two years. These ponds and lakes were developed by our ancestors and now we also have to develop them for future generations,” Shirodkar said after inaugurating a renovated Ganesh immersion pond at Bhatiwaddo, Parra on Monday.
Opposition leader and Calangute MLA Michael Lobo said that the pond, which is located alongside the famous ‘Bollywood’ road leading to Parra church, will be an added attraction in the area.
