Addressing media persons at the secretariat complex in Porvorim, Panchayat Minister Mauvin Godhino said that it will setup a technical cell and empower panchayats across the state to scientifically manage garbage woes. He also said that the government was in the process of setup 2 new plants to treat the garbage in Goa. Godhino maintained that the panchayat’s are given extra power by withdrawing the circular.
