One of Vasco residence, Jayesh Shetgaonkar in a message on whatsapp said “On the decision to keep coronavirus affected patients, Indians stranded in Iran, to keep them at MPT Old office at Harbour. This is a serious issue and in order to avoid them to get them shifted here, I urge all the people to gather at Sada Junction today at March 19 at 2.30 p.m.”
