Porvorim: Independent MLA Rohan Khaunte on Tuesday demanded resignation of CM Pramod Sawant over his failure to listen to the demand of total lockdown in the state to curb the COVID-19 infection.

Addressing a mediapersons at Porvorim, near here, Khaunte said that despite repeated requests with folded hands, CM has refused to lockdown the state even as death rate is on rise and hospital infrastructure has collapsed.

“CM should resign and hand over the administration to any senior officer. The Health Infrastructure has collapsed; there is scarcityof medicines and people are dying,” he said.

Khaunte recalled how families in his Assembly constituency of Porvorim (near Panaji) are being eliminated by the coronavirus.

He said that while the panchayats and municipal councils across the state are resorting to the lockdown, CM has refused to take such a step in the name of economy.

“We do understand economic concerns, but the most important concern right now is that of life. We have to save lives,” the former State Revenue Minister said.

 

He urged CM to expedite on the vaccination for the people above the age group of 18. The vaccinations should be provided free of cost and if we consider the number of 5 lakh people, government will have to invest only Rs 25 crore for the vaccination drive.

Khaunte said that the state government can divert the money from the Liberation Day fund for the purpose.
