Goa Under BJP Government Becoming a Hub for Unlicensed Medical Practitioners, Says Amarnath Panjikar



Panaji – In a scathing critique, Congress Media Cell Chairman Amarnath Panjikar has labeled Goa as a “Quack Destination” under the BJP government’s “Fake in India” mission. Panjikar expressed dismay over Chief Minister Dr. Pramod Sawant’s apparent helplessness in addressing the issue of fake dentists operating in Goa, particularly along the coastal belt.

Panjikar strongly condemned the BJP government’s failure to take decisive action against these fraudulent practitioners and even raised suspicions that they might be operating with the tacit approval of Health Minister Vishwajit Rane. He challenged the Chief Minister to prove him wrong by taking concrete steps against fake dentists and quacks.
