Panaji, Nov 1 (PTI) The Goa opposition has slammed an order by the Pramod Sawant government asking doctors at two COVID-19 facilities in Margao to vacate accommodation provided to them from Sunday onwards.

The Goa Association of Resident Doctors (GARD) has asked the state government to ensure doctors at ESI and South District hospitals in Margao continue to get accommodation as before, failing which they would 'retract services' amid the outbreak.

Independent MLA Rohan Khaunte said the Pramod Sawant government had 'failed to stand by COVID warriors' while Goa Forward Party vice president Durgadas Kamat said doctors were working diligently amid the pandemic and 'providing them with accommodation is the least' that can be done. PTI RPS BNM BNM
