There was no need for an inquiry: CM Pramod Sawant

GOA: Fatorda GFP MLA Vijai Sardesai demanded during Question Hour on Monday that the Central Bureau of Investigation or a specially constituted house committee investigate the Labourgate scam, which involved the alleged diversion of relief funds meant for construction labourers to BJP karyakartas.

Chief minister Pramod Sawant, however, said there was no need for an inquiry. “This is the worst scam,” Sardesai said in the legislative assembly. “How did the BJP karyakartas become labourers?”
Labour minister Jennifer Monserrate said the opposition should stop calling the matter a scam as there was nothing fraudulent about it. She said the Goa Building and Other Construction Workers (GBOCW) Welfare Board Assistance Scheme-Covid-19 has 13,437 beneficiaries, of which 1,744 transactions had failed because of incomplete bank details.
