Panaji: District Administration on Wednesday began investigating into the huge influx of migrants from Bihar entering the State by Patna-Vasco Express train after the issue was raised on the floor of the House.

The revenue officers of villages from Thivim, Colvale and Sirsaim have been asked to conduct inquiry into the influx of migrants, after the video of them crossing the over-bridge at Khorlim Railway Station in North Goa went viral.

Mamlatdar of Bardez Taluka Laxmikant Kuttikar has asked the concerned revenue officials to submit their reports by July 29 to him.

The issue was raised on the floor of the House on Wednesday by Independent MLA Rohan Khaunte who raised concern about such number of migrants entering the State by Patna-Vasco Express.

Chief Minister Pramod Sawant had told the House earlier during the day that he has asked District Collector to to probe the mass arrival of labourers by train number 12742 and their whereabouts.

“When a train full of labourers arrives in Goa, there is fear. Labourers come to Goa for work and then they get a plot with help of elements in panchayats, they build a house and then become voters. Where have they come from, what are their antecedents, needs to be checked,” Khaunte told the legislative assembly during Question Hour.
