On Wednesday Pacheco Blamed BJP Government

Former tourism minister Francisco Xavier ‘Mickky’ Pacheco on Wednesday  blamed the BJP government, particularly chief minister Pramod Sawant,  for the sharp increase in Covid-19 cases in Goa. He also opposed the double-tracking of  the South Western Railways line and came down heavily on the town and country planning department for trying to convert lakhs of square metres of land into settlement areas.

Pacheco told reporters that Sawant was solely responsible for the steep spike in Covid-19 cases by allowing trains to halt in Goa and also permitting the operation of interstate buses and other vehicles, thereby facilitating the entry of migrants.

“SOPs adopted by the government are like the stock market. They are relaxed whenever the chief minister or his colleagues seek to do so for their favourites. The chief minister’s immaturity can be determined by his statement that he allowed opening of hotels under pressure,” Pacheco said.
