India: Chief minister Pramod Sawant on Monday said that in the next four days, the Centre will come out with a standard operating procedure (SOP) to evacuate Nepal migrants from the state.
Most of them are employed at beach shacks, fast food joints and restaurants. Sawant said that till date, 80,000 migrants have registered to leave the state.
Nepali migrants residing in Goa are considered as foreign nationals, Sawant said, and that within two days the SOP will be announced by the Centre with regards to their return.
He also asked Nepali migrants who wish to return home, to register themselves with the authorities. “The external affairs ministry will unveil the SOP,” he said.
On other foreign nationals stranded here, Sawant said that those staying in houses, guesthouses and hotels should visit the nearby police station and get themselves registered so that the government can ascertain their numbers.
To a query regarding who will bear the travel fare for the migrant labourers, Sawant said that this aspect has not yet been decided. He also said that based on the number of migrants, the railway station would be designated for departure of trains. “The state government will make arrangements to drop the migrants at the railways station,” he said.
Sawant said that people of the state should maintain a watch on those who have been stamped for home quarantine. “If a home quarantine person moves out of his/her house, then that person would be forcibly kept under paid quarantine,” the chief minister said.
On the state’s economic revival, Sawant said that people can submit their suggestions by logging on the website www.goaonline.gov.in. He also said that there were a lot of demands from citizens to provide a platform so that they could give their feedback to the state government.
“Those who want to give suggestions for reviving the state economy can now do so,” Sawant said.
The chief minister also said that dental clinics have been allowed to open
