Panaji: Goa chief minister Manohar Parrikar’s absene from the State during last 100 days is being looked as an opportunity by Congress party is trying to revive itself, State Agriculture Minister Vijai Sardesai said.

Sardesai’s Goa Forward Party is an alliance partner in BJP-led State government. Parrikar,62, is currently in the USA to treat his pancreatic disease.

“I don’t think anybody is affected with the absence of the chief minister. He has been monitoring the administration in Goa from the USA on daily basis,” the minister said.

“Congress has to make some issue. Therefore they are using this as an opportunity to revive the party,” he said.

Sardesai said that “it is unfortunate that chief minister is suffering from health issue that is why he had to move abroad.”

“But he has made stop gap arrangement in the form of cabinet Advisory committee, which is working very well,” the minister said.

Responding to a question on recent remarks by MGP minister Sudin Dhavalikar that he is psychologically prepared to take over as the chief minister, Sardesai said “there is no question of anybody being a chief minister.”

“CAC is a stop gap arrangement and chief minister is very much in command of the state’s affairs,” he commented.

“Mental preparedness of any individual has nothing to do with change in the dispensation,” he added.

GFP is an alliance partner of BJP along with Maharashtrawadi Gomantak Party and Independents. GFP has three legislators in the 40-seat state legislative assembly.
