Panaji, Jun 4 : Goa Legislative Assembly Speaker Rajesh Patnekar on Thursday said that monsoon session of the state assembly could be held by the end of July or from the first week of August.
Speaking to reporters at the State Secretariat, Mr Patnekar said, ‘Mostly it will be in the last week of July or the first week of August. It will be decided by June 15.’
Responding to a question, he said the border of the state should be sealed and checking at the road borders should be thorough to control the rising number of Covid-19 cases in the state. "Borders which have already been sealed should remain so and checking should be thorough.
The quantum is increasing, but the government is taking maximum care in Goa, to ensure that the virus does not spread much. I am confident that the viral spread will be in control after some days, and Goa will be a safe place," the Speaker said. (UNI)
