No question of replacing Manohar Parrikar, says GFP's Vijai Sardesai
Manohar Parikkar is undergoing treatment for a pancreatic ailment at his residence after returning to the state on October 14 following hospitalisation at the All India Institute of Medical Sciences in New Delhi
Goa Forward Party chief Vijai Sardesai on Friday said there was no question of replacing ailing Manohar Parrikar as Goa Chief Minister. Sardesai is Agriculture minister in the Parrikar cabinet.
Parikkar is undergoing treatment for a pancreatic ailment at his residence after returning to the state on October 14 following hospitalisation at the All India Institute of Medical Sciences in New Delhi.
While the ruling BJP has maintained that Parrikar has been looking after the affairs of governance even as he undergoes treatment, the state's opposition parties, and
occasionally allies in the state government, have alleged that his health-related absence was bringing administration to a standstill. Sardesai Friday told PTI he met Parrikar on November 28.
"I had met the CM while coming back from the closing ceremony function of IFFI (International Film Festival of India) (on November 28). He is fine. Where is the question of replacing him?" Sardesai said.
