PANAJI: Locals from around Bambolim have demanded installing Traffic Signals at Fulancho Khuris-Bambolim, as they find it difficult to crossroads here.
Fr. Benjamin Rock, Parish Priest of Curca Church, demanded that the government pay heed to the demands and install Traffic Signals on Thursday.
“People of all religions come here to pray and seek blessings. Hence, the government must take some measures here.” Fr. Rock said.
He said that nobody was taken into confidence when the road was widened here and new developments had taken place. “Had they taken us into confidence, we would have given our suggestions?” he said.
Socorro Fernandes, the local from this area, said that many people visit Fulancho Khuris every day and seek blessings. “Not only Christians but Hindus and Muslims also come here and pray. People are finding it difficult to cross the road. Hence, the government should listen to the voice of the people,” he said.
Socorro Fernandes said they will submit a memorandum to the government and road contractor to take up the issue and install traffic signals.
Jagdish Bhobe, leader of Goa Forward, who was present at the site, said that he has come to Fulancho Khuris and pray since his childhood.
“It is our routine practise to come here and pray. Many people come here and seek blessings. Due to road development, people are facing problems crossing the road. Hence, we demand to install traffic signals here.” Bhobe said.
