MARGAO: In a shocking incident, Sonsodo waste management shed was engulfed by fire early Thursday morning.
Immediately, the Margao fire brigade at the site to bring the fire and smoke under control
Bombay High Court adjourned the hearing in the Sonsoddo garbage management issue to August 29, thereby giving the Margao Municipal Council (MMC) and other authorities concerned a month’s time to comply with the directions it had given recently.
It may be recalled that on July 11, while hearing a writ petition filed by Citizens of Sonsoddo, the HC had issued certain directions to the Margao municipal council to report to the Secretary (Urban Development) and to indicate day-to-day progress of waste management.
The HC had also barred MMC from issuing fresh construction licences until further orders, while also directing that the work at Sonsoddo be taken up on a war footing.
