Negligence of MRV company and state government has taken eleventh life on Patradevi – Dhargal national highway. One more person died at Valpem junction on Tuesday night.

 People of Virnoda have blamed local MLA and Deputy CM Babu Azgaonkar, PWD minister Dipak Pauskar as well as North Goa MP and union minister Shripad Naik. They have also threatened to block the highway if no underpass is built. Watch this killing story.

 Broadening of National Highway 17 on this stretch in Pedne is undertaken by MRV Construction company, allegedly having strong political connections at the centre. The whole road from Pedne to Mapusa is in a worst state.

No signboards, no street lights and no barricades. Accidents and accidental deaths has become a regular feature on this road. On Tuesday night, one vehicle dashed a two wheeler in the dark and ran away.
