Makadmares may soon face water woes due to broken tanks

Just as one thought that their woes had lessened following the efforts of the state and the society to mainstream them, the Makadmare (Wanarmares) tribals in Nirankal, Ponda, are now once again staring at the prospects of water crisis. Reason: The two water tanks installed by PWD near their settlement five years ago on the instructions of the South Goa district administration now lie damaged. With no other arrangements for assured water supply in place, the 100-odd houses could soon be facing water woes.
