Will take 500 years for Mollem to recover from this destruction: Congress

Scoffing at chief minister Pramod Sawant’s claim that the three linear projects at Mollem will cater for Goa’s needs for the next 50 years, Congress on Sunday said that the projects will cause extensive damage to Goa’s biodiversity. State Congress president Girish Chodankar said that it would take 500 years for the fragile ecosystem in the Western Ghats to recover.
