Taking to social media platform, Vijai Sardesai, tweeted, “We have petitioned National Executive Committee (NEC) to grant immediate permission to open up the Goa International Airport at Dabolim & MPT for repatriation of Goan Seafarers and other NRGs stranded abroad and allow free home quarantine, as per the provisions of IHO Regulations.”

Speaking media outside the Governor’s residence, Sardesai stated, “We have written to PM Modi to open up the airport and MPT for the stranded Goan seafarers and Non-Resident Goans (NRGs).”

He also expressed that paid quarantine is a scam to benefit hoteliers and hosting board exams in Goa is a wrong decision.
