One of the most vibrant living water bodies in Panjim was the Sant Inez creek.
After Liberation the creek seems to have turned into a nullah, choked with garbage and sewage from hutments that were never removed from the banks of the canal.
The residents defecate and empty their garbage into the creek and no council has ever dared to remove the hutments or prevent them from spreading close to the vicinity.
Ccp mayor surendra furtado said that it was every citizen of Panjim city’s duty to keep the st Inez nullah clean and free from unwanted things
