Panaji Mayor to fast if potholes not filled in 48hrs
Panaji Mayor Vitthal Chopdekar in Goa today said he and other corporators would launch a hunger strike if all potholes on the city roads are not filled up within 48 hours. He alleged that Municipal Commissioner Ajit Roy was not clearing files of road repair works expeditiously. He, however, said they had not yet decided whether it would be an indefinite fast.
Chopdekar made the firm statement in a press conference
"The corporators are giving a deadline of 48hrs to the commissioner to pass the files of road repairs, or we will be forced to resort to a hunger strike," Chopdekar said, holding a press conference in Panaji. "If he fails then we will decide whether the hunger strike is going to be indefinite or a token one," the Mayor said.
