More than panic, the quarantine centre of Vasco became a political issue.

 After opposing and then supporting, minister Milind Naik and his supporters have again said they don’t want this centre.

 While Congress leader Sankalp Amonkar raised questions over this double speak, Milind Naik came public with folded hands, requesting people not to make it a political issue.

And Health Minister Vishwajeet Rane has said only collector can take a decision.


On Wednesday Urban Development Minister and local MLA Milind Naik along with his supporters had opposed the quarantine centre at Mormugao.


They even gheroed Mormugao deputy collector and got the proposal canceled.


Next day, Mormugao BJP mandal said centre can come up in future only if there is emergency, but only after convincing the people living around this building.


Sankalp made an issue of it.
