  1. The Goa govt led by CM Sawant is always reacting rather than being proactive. The Goa halts should NOT have been allowed in the first place. And the rash of borders crossings by migrants vto Goa in goods trucks etc have resumed under the very nose of border guards. Goa govt seems to be in hibernation. When will it wake up and ensure no illegal entry by migrants into Goa?
