The CM said that his government was working on temporary and permanent measures to check the number of road accidents.
"One of the measures that would be taken is introducing 'garbage management' and 'traffic discipline' as part of the primary and secondary school educational curriculum," he said.
However, it is not known whether 'garbage management' and 'traffic discipline' will be introduced as separate subjects or will be taught as special topics under existing textbooks.
Parrikar said students would also be taught on importance of segregating garbage.
"It is important for the students to know the importance of segregation and treatment of garbage. We should tell them (students) that if we don't address this problem now, we would be pushed into the piles of waste," he said.
Recalling his recent visit to the Portuguese-era garbage dump at Sonsodo near Margao city, Parrikar said he found that the shed that was constructed to segregate garbage lies buried under heaps of trash.
