Panaji: While the hospitals already over stretched dealing with the deadly COVID-19 cases, the doctors are now further inundated with scores of road accidents on a daily basis caused by rash and drunken driving by some of the visiting tourists, social activist Aires Rodrigues said raising concerns over current health scenario in the state due to the pandemic.
“While the government wants to desperately welcome tourists to revive the economy it has miserably failed to ensure that the proper infrastructure is in place. A vivid example is the noted Chogham road starting from Porvorim leading to the North Goa coastal belt. It is in a very pitiable and accident prone state with poth-holes all over. Even the stretch at Saligao in front of former Chief Minister and late Dr Wilfred de Sousa’s residence is with craters galore,” Rodrigues said.
Earlier the government had assured to repair roads after the rainfall stops and the residents of Ribander had met Babush to discuss about the a full fledged Ribander Health Care Centre. Commenting on the need to focus on roads and health care facilities Rodrigues said, “It is only decisive leadership and the implementation of a clear health and safety plan that puts lives and road safety before profit, that will determine whether we are successful in containing this pandemic and helping the many affected medically, economically and on our roads.”
Questioning the decision of the government on opening casinos and promoting toruism in the state social activist Aires Rodrigues said, “At a time when tourism business is reviving at a slow pace, the government has given a green signal to open casinos. The next few weeks and months will reveal whether the government was right in opening the gates of Goa wide open for tourism.”
“There is no doubt every industry has to survive, but was the government in the given current grave circumstances prudent in starting the boat cruises, casinos and now wanting to hold the Sunburn festival?” Rodrigues asked.
