Panaji: Chief Minister Pramod Sawant on Tuesday said that several BJP leaders in the state were tested positive for COVID-19 infection, indicating that they were on the front during the pandemic times.

Sawant was addressing mediapersons after launching e-book “Sewa Hi Sangathan” documenting the social work undertaken by the party during 68-day-long lockdown period.

“Several BJP leaders including me has tested positive for COVID-19 infection. That does not mean we were irresponsible, we got infected because we were on the front helping people during the pandemic times,” the Chief Minister said.

He said that BJP leaders did not shy away from being in the field when COVID-19 outbreak happened, but instead were on the field helping people in distress.

Sawant said that the party has been helping people throughout the lockdown time and also during unlocking time. He taunted that leaders of some political parties were giving video bytes on the pandemic sitting at their homes with mask and face shield on.

The Chief Minister said that the e-book has been launched so that it can be a ready reference, in case, such pandemic situation arises in the future.

BJP Goa President Sadanand Shet Tanavade said that the party workers provided essential commodities and even cooked food to the people in the need.

He said that 3.15 lakh face masks and 2.15 lakh sanitizers were distributed to the people by the party workers.
