Bicholim: The Sakhali municipal council (SMC) chairperson and other councillors have strongly objected to the development of about 31 plots and construction of a house at Supachi pud, in Arvalem, Sanquelim, as the construction activity is being undertaken in a flood prone zone.
Chairperson Dharmesh Saglani stated that the Supachi pud at Arvalem has already been declared as flood prone in 2001 by the Bicholim taluka mamlatdar after the floods in 2000 badly damaged about 70 houses.
Ex-councillor Yeshwant Madkar claimed that this construction would also affect the ecological balance of this area.
Madkar said that the place where the plots are developed is a place where Honda and Arvalem rivers meet and forms the source of the Arvalem waterfall. He added that the authorities have already demarcated this as a dangerous and flood prone area and harmful for any construction activity.
He further alleged that the PWD built a retaining wall in this area to prevent any construction but despite these measures, an illegal house is being constructed very close to this retaining wall, causing severe threat to the area. He called upon concerned authorities to stop such illegalities in the village.
Saglani stated that they would take serious note of such illegalities if found true and would inspect the area soon. He also assured that no such illegal constructions would be allowed to spring up in this flood prone zone.
