Goa governor Satya Pal Malik visited Selaulim dam

GOA: Goa governor Satya Pal Malik visited the Selaulim dam in Sanguem on Friday and spent some time enjoying the scenic beauty of the place amid the heavy rains.

Malik was accompanied by Sanguem MLA Prasad Gaonkar, deputy collector Ajay Gaude, mamlatdar Manoj Korgaokar and others during the visit which was organised by the state’s forest department. Speaking to reporters later, Malik expressed his admiration for the place, describing the dam as “unparalleled” and the botanical garden as one that is “excellently maintained.”

The governor said that his visit was also driven by the President’s desire that the governors visit all such places in their respective states which have not yet gained much popularity, and wherever necessary suggest ideas for development. “Last week, I visited the Bhagwan Mahavir wildlife sanctuary and the Mollem national park. There’s a 1,000-year old temple, there but very few people even know about it,” Malik said. The News 24 Goa
