Mapusa councillor Sushant Harmalkar had showed the condition of road at Karraswado to local MLA Joshua Dsouza.

The MLA gave the contractor some suggestions and told him to make sure people do not face problems.

However, contractor did just opposite. In the name of repairs contractor broke the water pipeline supplying water to Bardez.
