Goa Commissioner for NRI Affairs Narendra Sawaikar said 5,200 stranded Goans want to come back to Goa. Mr Sawaika said that according to his estimate the registered NRIs amount to around 25 percent of the total Goan expatriates and they are returning due to insecurities. Further he also said that around 1,200 Portuguese nationals want to return to Goa, but this can be desided by central Govt.
