Call To Vascoites To Save The Port

Goa: The Goencho Ekvott gave a call to Vascoites to save the port town from being a hub for coal handling, “or else it will soon be known as ‘Coal da Gama’ instead of Vasco da Gama”.At an awareness programme on the three development projects held on Saturday evening at the St Andrew’s Church compound, the speakers stressed that “if Vasco is saved then entire Goa will be saved”.Capt Viriato Fernandes, executive member of Goencho Ekvott, which is backed by 28 NGOs, said “All three projects MPT expansion, double tracking of railways and expansion of highways – are only to facilitate the movement of coal. We have to stop this destruction.”

Among those who were seated in the audience were BJP’s Cortalim MLA Alina Saldanha, NCP’s Benaulim MLA Churchill Alemao, Congress’ Curtorim MLA Aleixo Reginaldo Lourenco, leader of opposition and Margao MLA Digambar Kamat, a few councillors of the Mormugao Municipal Council and Chicalim sarpanch Seby Pereira.
