Panaji: Aam Aadmi Party lashed out at the BJP Govt today. Terming the Sawant Govt as stone hearted Govt it highlighted how COvid Warriors have still not been paid their dues. The BJP makes a huge song and dance about Covid warriors but they ignore them in their time of need denying them even their dues! The BJP who is promising 10,000 jobs to Goenkars can’t even pay 400 staff their dues! During the height of the pandemic 400 Goans were hired by the Govt as multitasking staff. These people without fearing for their own life had come forward and worked to forget Goa out of the clutches of COVID. It is disheartening to know that these Covid warriors haven’t received their salaries since the last 5 months only due to the inefficient and stone hearted BJP.
While Goa was one of the worst hit places in the world with covid positivity rate even touching 50% today after the second wave the frontline warriors are completely forgotten by the Sawant Sarkar. While th BJP makes a huge show about honoring frontline warriors the fact of the matter is that they don’t care for them beyond PR. The states medical infrastructure was pushed to the limit and even now photos of broken ambulances go viral. With Covid still around can the Govt still not find it in its heart to clear dues of our frontline warriors? Today a blame game is on between the GMC and the directorate of accounts over the due for the past 5 months. Is this the way to treat those on the frontline? Between this bureaucratic mess and ultimately once more the common Goekar who suffers. Why should Goans suffer due to the inefficiency of the Govt. Or has someone pocketed the money?
Recently Goa celebrated Ganesh chaturthi with great pomp, but these workers were forced to borrow money even to celebrate a festival which is close to their hearts. This is how callous the Govt under Pramod Sawant has become. The people of Goa have seen the heartless approach of the govt towards Goans and Goans will show this BJP govt the door in the upcoming assembly elections.
“The BJP is a stone hearted Govt that only cares about COvid warriors if they can get any PR out of it. When our frontline warriors are made to run pillar to post for their dues the BJP goes missing” said Dr Vibhas Prabhudesai AAP Goa Leader
“It is so shocking to see that Goa’s Covid warriors had to borrow money for chaturthi celebrations as their dues lie unpaid. Dr Pramod Sawant needs to show his solidarity to his fraternity of healthcare workers and release their dues immediately” Said AAP Goa Convenor Rahul Mhambre
