Panaji: Goa Chief Minister Pramod Sawant on Monday said that he would order enquire into two ‘parties’, one of which was organised by a BJP MLA on July 5, 2020.
Speaking to reporters, he said,”We will enquire into it”.
The assurance came a day after a video of a BJP MLA attending a party with 20-odd workers in a house at Calangute went viral.
In the video most of the guests were seen not wearing masks nor maintaining social distancing.
The party was organised at a time when state was witnessing spike in COVID-19 cases.
Ports Minister Michael Lobo said North Goa district administration had not given permission to organise private parties.
“If anyone, including BJP members have attended any party, action will be taken under Section 188 (disobeying public servant),” he said
