The e-rickshaws scheme for garbage collection which had been started by the Central govt. under the Swacch Bharat Yojna seems to be running without any planning and continues to be a white elephant,

Due to which locals have to suffer. Therefore, Panchayat Minister Mauvin Godinho has said that he will revise the scheme as soon as possible.

Four of these rickshaws have been given to each panchayat under the Swachh Bharat Yojana. But the scheme seems to be without any proper planning. These rickshaws have low payload capacity.

The balancing isn’t right either. The rickshaws fail to even clim uphill with a full load of garbage. Panchayats too, cannot afford to hire drivers. As no separate provision is made for them. Listen to what Sarpanch Kamala Prasad Yadav has to say.

Chikhalim Panchayat’s Sarpanch Kamla Yadav said that since the panchayat comes under the constituency of Dabolim MLA Mauvin Gudinho who is also the Panchayat Minister, there is pressure to maintain standard to set an example to other panchayats. Listen what he has to say

Here’s Panchayat Minister Mavin Gudinho reaction after finally finding out that these rickshaws are of no use. He too has acknowledged the flaws in the scheme and informed about the revisal of this scheme as soon as possible.
