It was an emergency.

And there was no one to operate the ferry from Diwar island to Ribandar.

Some retired employees of river navigation came forward and operated the ferry boat

. Looks like Captain of Ports didn’t mind it.

And the trade union says they will close down all the ferries if the department takes action. Captain of Ports James Braganza confirmed that the ferry boat was operated by some ex-employees because it was emergency.

There was nobody to operate the ferry boat and a patient had to be taken across to the GMC hospital. Also few passengers to the airport.

Trade Union leader Christopher Fonseca claims that he personally intervened and made the arrangements.
