The MPA had also assured me to hand over the ground, and I could not attend yesterday’s meeting at the MPA as I was in Delhi. I had told Sankalp Amonkar not to wait for me or defer the discussion as it would delay things further, and we will have the final meeting next week to discuss the other aspects to finalise the GCA and MPA Mou,” said Salkar.
“Vasco is now slowly taking shape in the form of development, and we can see that the Vasco Railway station is undergoing upgradation and expansion. We have started the works of the fish market complex, Maimolem lake is being restored, MMC renovation is about to be completed, and we have plans to start the much-delayed and awaited chief Officer bungalow and Baina Power House project. The work on the MMC renovated building is almost complete, and we may Inaugurate the new building by March,” said Salkar.
“Most of the projects were stuck and pending, and finally, the UD Minister Vishwajeet Rane has given us a free hand while CM Dr Pramod Sawant has given us financial approvals to clear long pending projects. Regarding the improvement of sports infrastructure in Vasco, the GCA will develop MPA Grounds; we are also renovating and improving the ground at Bhute bhat, and a sports City is planned in the open ground near Tanya Hotel. We are trying to expedite sports infrastructure through the sports department as the National Games are also fast approaching,” said Salkar.

“The main roads of the City FL Gomes Road and Swatantra Path are being taken up, and now the internal roads are being taken up. The projects are taken at the cost of Rs 1 crores. We are also glad that underground cabling is taken up in Vasco while many other projects are in the pipeline, which will change the shape of Vasco. We are also taking up works on laying of Sewerage connection in the city jurisdiction because there is good coordination between Vasco MLA Krishna Salkar, and Mormugao MLA Sankalp Amonkar, and we are helped by the Panchayat Minister Mauvin Godinho to bring about great overall development in the MMC Jurisdiction ” said Salkar
