The opposition criticised chief minister Pramod Sawant for lying about his interaction with Goa governor Satya Pal Malik and for ascribing wrong statements to the governor. While Goa Forward Party called Sawant a “pathological liar” Congress said it was a “shameful act”. After meeting the governor, Sawant had said that Malik had criticised the media’s coverage of covid-19 cases.
“The governor rebuffed the chief minister for saying the media misleads. He also said that not locking down Vasco was a judgemental error and giving the excuse of co-morbidities for Covid deaths was unethical. Goa never had such a pathological liar as chief minister,” GFP president Vijai Sardesai, said.
GFP said that Sawant, by shamelessly and blatantly lying about what the governor had said, had crossed all limits, exposing once again characteristic traits of deceit and duplicity.
