AAP Goa blames CM Pramod Sawant, Cabinet Ministers for third wave

AAP Goa convener Rahul Mhambrey said the BJP chief minister and his cabinet colleagues were responsible for the "third wave" of the infection in the state.

The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) on Wednesday, January 5, held Chief minister Pramod Sawant and his cabinet colleagues responsible for a "third wave" of the coronavirus pandemic in Goa, saying they refused to act in time and impose curbs when the situation demanded.

AAP Goa convener Rahul Mhambrey said the BJP chief minister and his cabinet colleagues were responsible for the "third wave" of the infection in the state.

"The cabinet refused to impose curbs when they there was a need for them. There was a time when daily coronavirus cases were low and the situation could have been controlled," Mhambrey told reporters in Panaji.

He said the chief minister refused permission to the AAP to hold 'Tiranga Yatra' in the poll-bound state, but he himself recently addressed two rallies.

Mhambrey said the permission was denied at the last minute by the administration, which cited the recent spike in COVID-19 infections. "Lame excuses were given to deny permission for the yatra. Coincidentally, the chief minister himself addressed two public meetings a day earlier (when nod for yatra was denied). It seems COVID-19 does not impact their (BJP) rallies," He said.

The coastal state is currently witnessing a surge in COVID-19 cases and reported 1002 fresh cases were reported on Wednesday, January 5, its highest single-day rise after seven months.

The number of active Covid cases have jumped to 3718, the highest since June 16. out of which 13 are hospitalisations and 989 home isolations.
