A huge peepal Tree branch collapsed in Vasco On Thursday night. This damaged two shop and electrical poles. Luckily a major tragedy was averted as the huge branch came crashing on the road and there was no loss of life on the busy road.

Speaking to media, a local resident Gaonkar said that the biggest issue was that despite several requests made by the local to the MMC to cut the trees, no tree cutter was willing to climb the tree or cut it because peepal tree has Hindu religious sentiments attached to it.

Gaonkar appealed the MMC to cut weak trees in Vasco prior to monsoons.
