Margao: Goa Forward Party Chief Vijai Sardesai has urged state government not to reduce a humanitarian rescue operation to revenue generation extortion.
Sardesai was referring to the state government’s decision to charge Seafarers for the quarantine facility.
The GFP chief tweeted “Don’t reduce a humanitarian rescue operation to a revenue generating extortion racket. Draw detailed repatriation plan for bulk of #Goemkars. Silence of credit seeking politicians is deafening and keenly watched by Goemkar Seafarers, their families and people.”
