Who will man grocery shops, Mr CM? Italian Goenkar says RESTRAINT is the only option

SANDESH PRABHUDESAI, PANAJI | 26 March 2020 23:57 IST

With public fuming everywhere since they were running out of daily essentials, Chief Minister Dr Pramod Sawant finally surrendered to open the shops, but without any proper arrangments, like in Mumbai, Delhi or the world over.

“I want 100% shut down, but people want shops to be open. Ok, we open the shops, but then don’t hold government responsible if the corona virus spreads”, said CM, displaying his helplessness.

He appealed to the people not to gather in large numbers for panic shopping and even offered an option to keep the grocery shops & super stores open for 24 hours and also to maintain social distancing.

Reading this news in Italy, Carlos Miranda, a Goan who has been living in Milan for the last 40 years, sent an audio message as well as a photo of  how people are standing at safe distance outside the super stores.

“It’s a war and we have to win it”, he said.

Thanks a lot for getting and broadcasting about how other nations are managing lockdown. Hope incapable Goa govt in particular and Goan in particular will adopt all the suggestions made in your precious video. Unfortunately only 6 people have seen this. We should make attempt that every one who are in Goa must see this video.
