Panjim: Goa Forward Party (GFP) MLA Vijay Sardesai on Monday said if an assembly cannot discuss a serious issue like Covid-19, which is the reason being proposed three week session getting restricted to one day, then it should be dissolved.
Speaking to reporters outside the state assembly complex, he said instead of sanctioning Rs seven crore on repair and maintenance of the state assembly complex, the government should instead invest in medical equipment so that the 6,000 odd pending Covid-19 test results are expedited.
“If they (treasury benches) do not want to discuss the very issue, because of which a three week session has been reduced to one day… let us do away with the farce. Dissolve the assembly,” Sardesai said.
“The CM has ordered Rs. 7 crore for repairs (of the assembly complex). Instead, use the money to purchase testing equipment and expedite the pending six thousand Covid-19 test results,” the former Deputy Chief Minister said
