Panjim, Sept 27 (IENews) Taking a serious jibe at the Chief Minister of Goa, former Goa RSS Chief Subash Velingkar scoffed at the hypocrisy of Manohar Parrikar in removing two BJP ministers on grounds of serious illness when he himself is critically ill and continues to hold his ministerial position.
“Parrikar dropped two ministers from the Cabinet because they are sick but he himself remains stuck to his position despite being critically ill,” Velingkar expressed.
He further accused the BJP of “losing morality and indulging in the same practices like other parties in the country”.
Parrikar is currently admitted to AIIMS in Delhi for a pancreatic ailment. The former Goa RSS chief also attacked politicians for frequenting hospitals in the US even for a minor cause at the cost of the state exchequer.
“The situation is not right in Goa. Politicians go to US for treatment, but we have to get treated at the state-run Goa Medical College and Hospital. They can remove others from the Cabinet claiming that they are ailing but when he (Parrikar) is critically ill, he retains his own position,” said Velingkar.
Velingkar, who was a political mentor of Parrikar and Ayush Minister Shripad Naik in their initial days.
