On the occasion of 60th Goa Liberation day , Goa Forward Chief and Fatorda MLA Vijai Sardesai inaugurated a new dedicated hearse van and three mobile morgues for Fatorda constituency under the initiative We For Fatorda. Fr Kinley D’Cruz & the Dean of Rachol Seminary Fr. Victor Ferrao, graced and blessed the inauguration of van and mobile morgues in presence of Usha Sardesai, and former Councilos from Fatorda.
Speaking at the inauguration, Father Victor Ferrao said that Fatorda MLA Vijai Sardesai
has been providing much needed support to the citizens and their families especially in difficult moments, with the loss of loved members. Reflecting on Goa’s liberation day, Fr. Ferrao said that many decades ago Goa witnessed Operation Vijay through which Goa got liberated. He said that time has come once again to restart a new Operation Vijay from today to protect our land , river and natural resources to Save Goa. We need to resist the the second colonization which has started in the state and must stand firmly with Vijai to take Goa Forward.
Fatorda MLA Vijai Sardesai while speaking on the occasion said that “We For Fatorda has launched three mobile morgues and a hearse van. 10 years back we had started this service free of cost for the people of Fatorda.” Sardesai said “Dignity in death should be given to the people who die and it’s my commitment as a public representative to continue the work which I have been doing since last 10 years.”
The MLA Fartorda said that the Govt has failed to operationalise a full fledged morgue in the hospital, which is the reason we are providing this service, so that citizens and residents should not suffer when they are in need. This is facility is not only used by the people of Fatorda but also people from neighbouring constituencies said Sardesai
During Covid19 pandemic, Fatorda was the only constituency in Goa which provided free of cost covid ambulance since the beginning of the pandemic and it helped hundreds of patients to reach hospital in time, which saved many lives. Fatorda is also the only constituency in Goa which has a 24X7 helpline ( 8888411111) which is operational since last 8 years. Citizens should make maximum use of the this helpline too said Sardesai.
