The Bombay High Court has directed Goa Chief Secretary to file an affidavit specifying the health status of Goa CM Manohar Parrikar on Wednesday.

This happened in wake of a petition by local politician Trajano D’Mello, seeking to know the health status of Parrikar, who is suffering from advanced pancreatic cancer and has not been able to attend any official meeting or function outside his private residence for more than a month now. He has been in and out of hospitals for nearly 9 months.

The petition sought the court to direct state Chief Secretary Dharmendra Sharma to evaluate Parrikar’s health by a panel of expert doctors and release a medical report in public domain.

The Opposition as well ruling coalition allies have been demanding the resignation of the CM Parrikar claiming that his prolonged illness has put the state administration on hold.

Last month, hundreds of protestors marched to Parrikar’s residence publicly giving him an “ultimatum” of 48 hours to step down.

Aires Rodrigues, social activist and the leader of the protest march said,“We need a full-time CM. For the last nine months, the state administration has collapsed. The CM is not meeting his own ministers and MLAs.”

Maharashtrawadi Gomantak Party (MGP), an ally of Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) in Goa, demanded CM Manohar Parrikar to hand over the charge to someone “capable”.
