Margao: Reacting strongly to the arrest of Gina Periera – wife of a stranded seafarer, former Deputy CM of Goa and President of Goa Forward Party (GFP) Vijai Sardesai slammed the Chief Minister of Goa Dr Pramod Sawant starting the arrest is shocking and condemnable.
Family members of seafarers who are unable to return home due to lock down imposed due to COVID-19 held hunger strike near official residence of Chief Minister Pramod Sawant in the city on Wednesday.
The protesters held placards which read ‘Our Govt is dead, can’t bring our seafarers back’.
However, they were later arrested by the police.
Sardesai further added, “Hitherto CM has responded to genuine of seafarers’ families with inaction and asking time. With this insensitive act the government has proven it lacks Karuna to fight Corona.”
