Panaji: A Goan youth who had travelled to Goa in train from Delhi on Saturday was asked to shell out Rs 2,000 for his COVID-19 test.
Tukaram Langote tweeted “@DrPramodPSawant sir, I’m a proud Goan and reached today from the Delhi-Madgaon Special train. On arrival all Goan origin passengers were charged 2k for the test even after informing we are Goans and not outsiders”
He has attached his receipt along with the tweet.
Reacting to the development, Goa Forward Party chief Vijai Sardesai tweeted “To make a #Goemkar feel like an outsider in his own home is the height of insensitivity and disrespect. Looks like what @goacm proposes, his #govt disposes.”
