And inspite of this, the panchayat has done a good job of keep the village clean.” He said, “In Calangute constituency, more than 300 toilets have been constructed, and if any household has been left it can contact the panchayat office, within 3 months a toilet will be constructed.” He also assured the people that if any household is without electricity connection and water connection, these basic facilities will be provided to the household. And if the household poor, we will provide the facilities free of cost.” Speaking about the Prime Minister, Lobo said that “the world recognizes Modi as Iron Man of India, and to uplift the downtrodden, he has come out with many schemes. He has instructed all the states to work toward open defecation-free mission. Sopte said that “it is sad to see parents being kept in home for the aged. Some inmates are from good families. Every parent takes a lot of trouble and make a lot of sacrifice to see their children come up in life and expect them to look after them in their old age.”
