Maharastrian workers employed at Goa's industrial estates have been asked to rejoin duty soon. Otherwise their services would be terminated, they have been warned.

Maharashtra Government made representation to the Goa Government requesting that these employees be allowed to enter Goa for work.

On Wednesday, a delegation from Maharashtra comprising MLAs Rajan Teli and Nitesh Rane met a Goan delegation at Patradevi and and handed over a letter to Goa chief minister.


Goa's delegation comprised Secretary to Chief Minister Ashok Kumar, North Goa Collector R. Menaka, Deputy Collector Pernem Chandrakant Shetkar and BJP organising secretary Satish Dhond at Patradevi on Wednesday.


Around 7,000 workers from Maharashtr's Sindhudurg taluka are stranded at home following the lockdown.
