A Division bench of the Bombay High Court at Goa comprising of Justice M.S. Sonak and Justice D.S. Naidu will on Friday August 28th hear   the petition filed by Adv. Aires Rodigues over the Goa Government having not initiated the process to select the new Goa Lokayukta despite the current incumbent Justice P.K. Misra due to retire on September 17th.

While pointing out that the Goa Lokayukta Act was enacted in 2011 to provide for the establishment of the Institution of Lokaayukta to inquire into grievances and allegations against Public functionaries in the State of Goa, Adv. Rodrigues in his petition has stated that fully aware that the current Lokayukta demits office on 17th September, 2020 it was incumbent on the government to have started the process to look for the next Lokayukta.

Adv. Rodrigues has further stated that it appears that the State Government is not keen to appoint the next Lokayukta so as to give public officials a free hand to indulge in acts of Corruption and maladministration and that the functioning of the Lokayukta and the cases currently pending would come to a grinding halt.

Adv. Rodrigues in his petition has sought that the High Court consider issuing directions to the Goa  Government for the purpose of selection of the new Lokayukta to take over the vital position after the term of the current incumbent ends on September 17th 2020.
