Ports Minister Michael Lobo on Friday took the media in the sea to show how safe the ship is. But rest of the things he pushed on DG Shipping and MPT.
Lobo organized a boat trip near the grounded ship to show how they have put the booms around the ship to control any possible leakage.
Mainly to counter opposition’s allegation that the ship has started leaking.
Oil collection tankers are also stationed near the ship to collect spilled oil.
Ports Minister Michael Lobo said he will write to DG Shipping requesting that MPT should take permission of Goa government before bringing hazardous chemical tankers in the port.
Lobo also rubbished the allegations that dead fish died due to poisoned sea water at Marivel beach.
Meanwhile, Opposition Leader Digambar Kamat once again insisted on why Goa needs a white paper on the whole episode of getting unmanned ship from Kochi to Goa, when nobody used naphtha in Goa.
