Regarding the matter, he said, '1,500 to 2,000 foreigners are stranded in Goa. Most of them are British. We are getting calls from many foreign people, who are appealing to be removed. Some of them have approached the British Embassy and the Goa Police. So, Savio said that many of these tourists were holidaying in Goa for a long time. Many of them have come from six months ago. Most are living in rented houses and facing the problem of purchasing essential items. We are helping them in every way possible.
