Panaji: Aam Aadmi Party today castigated chief minister Dr. Pramod Sawant for the spike in covid cases and said mere phrases like “bhiupachi garaz na” do not work.
AAP Goa Convener Rahul Mhambre pointed out that every day there are 130 new cases thus giving Goa 8 per cent covid cases which is higher than the national rate 5 per cent.”Goa at present has the fourth highest number of covid cases and this is not expected when the chief minister is from the medical profession,” he said.He further pointed out that the chief minister only preaches safeguards and precautions but does not follow them at public functions and places.
“Dr. Pramod’s misadventures are putting Goa and Goans at great risk,” said Rahul.He also questioned whether the SOP is only for activists protesting and not for casinos and night clubs.”Why is the chief minister so kind to the casino and night club industry and least bothered about Goans losing their means of livelihood?” he asked
State stance on CZMP public meeting where people were not allowed for the meeting following the COVID protocols, Huge police force was deployed to keep the public from entering the meeting premises. The police have remained mere spectators while red carpet is been set for outsiders at casinos and night clubs, one of the crucial SOPs is that casinos are only permitted to contain 50% of their capacity at any given time. “Whether this is being maintained is the question, given the huge rush at nights on weekends and festival holidays said AAP Goa Convener Rahul Mhambre. He further mentioned that comprehensive SOPs for casinos were issued, given the chaos and confusion that is being witnessed in connection with the casinos, it needs to be asked if SOP compliance is being monitored by the authorities.
