Panaji, Jun 1 : The Congress in Goa on Monday alleged that the new cases of COVID-19 positive patients with suspected community transmission were the result of irresponsible and insensitive behaviour of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) Government.
In a statement, Goa Pradesh Congress Committee (GPCC) Spokesperson Amarnath Panjikar said the act of government had put the lives of the people in danger. "We demand that all those who attended Inaugural and Foundation Stone laying functions of the government with mass gatherings in the last eight days must be tested for Covid..
The irresponsible act of the Chief Minister has pushed Goans into dangers of Covid Pandemic with no fault of the people. Goans had observed the lockdown with utmost discipline and care. This is a breach of trust of the Common Man by the government," he said. The BJP had become completely insensitive towards the public and has played with the health of the people to seek political mileage, he alleged. (UNI)
