In a courteous gesture to a passerby, Goa Chief Minister Pramod Sawant on Friday stopped his convoy to provide assistance to a woman tourist who had met with an accident. He stopped the convoy to first examine her and then take her to the nearest hospital in one of his escort vehicles.

Sawant was on his way back from Dabolim interntional airport, Goa, after returning from an official visit to Delhi, where he met several BJP leaders as well as Nirmala Sitharaman, Union Finaisit tonce Minister.

He stopped the convoy at the Zuari bridge to enquire after a woman who was knocked down in a hit and run case.

It is to be noted that Sawant is a doctor in alternative medicine. He stopped the convoy, examined the wounds and then facilitated her visit to the nearest hospital in a car from his convoy.

An eyewitness recorded the video of the incident and uploaded it on social media.

“The Chief Minister also enquired whether the injured lady had noted down the number of the vehicle which had collided with a two-wheeler,” an official attached to the Chief Minister’s Office said.
