Panaji: Porvorim MLA Rohan Khaunte came down heavily upon chief minister Pramod Sawant over re-opening of schools in the state. Sawant had informed that he will announce the decision regarding re-opening of schools on Tuesday.
In a tweet on Monday Khaunte wrote, “While we cherish our children and celebrate Children’s Day this November, we can expect just the opposite from @Goacm who is deciding to risk our children’s lives by opening schools.”
“As a parent myself, I empathise with the panic that thousands of Goan parents feel,
especially when Covid is on the rise. Let’s make our voice heard! @drpramodpsawant must know that cruel decisions risking our children will not be tolerated,” Khaunte added.
It must be recalled that schools have been shutdown since the outbreak of coronavirus pandemic in March.
