After handing over the cheque to Dayakar Bangera, Lobo speaking to the mediapersons said, “Dayakar Bangera’s house had collapsed on March 24. I, along with the ward corporator, visited the spot. After seeing the condition of Dayakar and his family, I immediately spoke to the Tahashildar and the Village Accountant to sanction funds to build a house for Dayakar before the rainy season starts. The Village Accountant, the Tahashildar and the Revenue Inspector prepared the necessary papers and sanctioned the funds within 4 days under the Calamity Relief Fund.”
He further said that the Congress party workers also came forward to contribute. “They are providing building materials such as sand, cement and red stones. Abbas contractors will provide the building materials, Hurbert D’Souza will provide 5 loads of sand, Balakrishna Kottari, Vinod Pumpwell and Santhosh Pumpell will also provide building materials.”
Lobo said that the intention is to build a house before the rainy season starts.
