Goa Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar on Tuesday said Goa will be made garbage free by 2020.
He was speaking after hoisting the tri-colour at the state level celebrations of India’s 71st Independence Day at Old Secretariat in Panaji.
“Management of waste is a critical issue because of its adverse effect on all sectors. It would therefore be the endeavour of Government to make Goa Garbage free by 2020,” he said.
Parrikar added, “Government embarked on the ‘Swachh Bharat, Nital Goem’ mission with the sole intention of maintaining the cleanliness in the state and further educating the people to be cleanliness conscious therefore making Goa clean and presentable.”
