"I spoke to Home Minister Amit Shah on phone and I feel lockdown may be extended for 15 more days. However, we demand that there should be some relaxations - restaurants should be allowed with social distancing at 50 per cent capacity. Many people also want gyms to resume," he added. Sawant stated that they are waiting for the Ministry of Home Affairs guidelines and if the State gets relaxation then guidelines will be issued for Goa accordingly.
