PONDA: The villagers of Bhoma, affected by road widening, have pledged to fight against the project to save two age-old two temples.
Bhoma locals fear that two temples and an age-old Ghumati will be demolished for proposed road widening and warned to fight against it until their last breadth.
In a press briefing, they strongly opposed the proposed road widening. Historian Prajal Sakhardande also inspected the three religious sites.
He stressed the need to protect the ancient traditional religious monuments.
Sanjay Naik said ten years ago then, former CM Manohar Parrikar had scrapped the road widening based on Villagers’ demand.
He said villagers recently filed RTI but are not getting accurate information on Highway. Three alignments were proposed for widening with no clarity, which has been accepted.
The other locals said if any Ministers say NHAI would not touch their temples for road widening, then why don’t they visit the deity in three temples and pledge it before the deity. They said the government not taking them into confidence.
