Very ludicrous and bizarre is Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar’s statement that his government can be brought down only with the mandate of the people. Does Manohar Parrikar need to be reminded that on March 14th this year he very deviously and crookedly usurped the Chief Minister’s Chair despite the people of Goa having clearly voted out the BJP? It was a total and blatant breach of the people’s verdict with the fundamental democratic principles totally breached and violated.
And highly laughable and preposterous is Manohar Parrikar’s other cynical statement that he has no objection to anyone contesting against him at the by-election to the Panaji Constituency. Is Manohar Parrikar losing his last marbles? In 2012 Manohar Parrikar had publicly stated that it would be his last election and that he would take to farming after his retirement. If that had happened, Goa would not have landed itself in the mess of political poaching.
On 22nd September 2009 Manohar Parrikar had the audacity to dub the veteran BJP leader L.K.Advani as ageing pickle that had turned rancid whose political innings were more or less over. Maybe it’s now the very rancid Manohar Parrikar’s turn to hang his boots and allow Goa to move on.
