Khanapur MLA Dr.Anjali Nimbalkar met Sri Nitin Gadkari Hon’ble Minister for Road Transport & Highways at New Delhi & requested Urgent repairs of Khanapur Goa road and beginning of work stopped. Hon’ble Minister assured the immediate initiation of the fresh tender process for completion of work.
Dr. Nimblakar also asked to include road passing through Khanapur town on Belagavi Panaji NH 748 for one-time cement road as heavy rainfall damages the road badly. He immediately instructed the concerned authorities to include Khanapur town road for cement road.
MLA brought the attention of the minister MoRTH towards the pathetic condition of National Highway 748 from Belagavi to Goa. Fifty-two kilometers of road passes through her constituency Khanapur in Karnataka and the widening work is undertaken by NHAI for the same for years now.
The road from Khanapur to Ramnagar, in particular, is in very bad condition and the contractor has not even bothered to make a service road for emergent medical services to be attended during the ongoing pandemic days.
The abject neglect by Central Government, NHAI, and other responsible agencies has thrown the daily life of people from surrounding nearly forty villages to the toss with no one to care for them.
Central Government & the State Government have miserably failed to provide effective solutions to the woes and issues faced by the farmers, patients, pregnant women in particular, and people in general from her constituency.
MLA said, I have already flagged the issue by writing letters to Deputy Commissioner, Belagavi, Supdt of Police, Belagavi and Project Director, NHAI Dharwad, Karnataka but the insensitive bureaucracy working under nonresponsive central and state governments is of no help to my people.
Finally, I have decided to bring the issue to your personal knowledge directly so that you may instruct the concerned for immediate repairs of the road and make the life of people livable which is their fundamental right. With southwest monsoon setting in and my constituency being one of the highest rainfall areas of India; the life of people with such man-made disaster; you may hopefully understand and do the needful. A line in reply about action taken may please be communicated to me within seven days.
