BJP slams Goa lockdowns but mins, party MLAs support them

Even as several panchayats have declared self-imposed lockdowns to combat the spread of Covid-19, state BJP president Sadanand Shet Tanavade on Sunday called these decisions illegal. “Village panchayats cannot go for self-lockdown, it is illegal,” he said. However, his party found itself in a Catch-22 situation, as these lockdown decisions have the full support of BJP legislators and ministers.
