Margao: South Goa Member of Parliament (MP) Francisco Sardinha, on Wednesday, said he had  spoken to the  Union Minister for  External Affairs on the issue of bringing the  stranded Goan seafarers back and he was assured that once the  lockdown is withdrawn  these Goans would be brought back to Goa.

Speaking to this daily over a phone, the MP said that he will follow up the issue with the minister concerned since  it is the duty of the  Indian government to airlift these Goans stranded across the world.

He further opined that it is foolish decision on the part of the state  government to  send teachers to conduct the  house-to-house health survey.

“Instead, the government should  follow the  Bhilwara- Rajasthan  model, where  team of doctors checked  the people house-to-house in view of  the COVID 19 cases. The  people here will not give the information  required and hence the whole exercise will be a waste of time and  energy,” he added.
