Goa Forward Party chief Vijai
Sardesai on Monday asked the Pramod Sawant government in the coastal state to form an "inter-departmental cum inter- disciplinary taskforce" to combat the novel coronavirus outbreak.
He welcomed the lockdown measures taken by the state government and called them "short term pain for long term gain".
"The Goa government must form an inter-departmental cum inter-disciplinary taskforce under the state chief secretary to implement PCR (creventive-Containment-remedial) measures. A Covid (Care of Vulnerable and In Distress) Fund should be set up under the chief minister to mitigate the virus' economic fallout on the poor, vulnerable and small and medium businesses," he said.
