Goa: The opposition Congress and NGOs (Non Government Organisations) will join a rally here demanding resignation of ailing Goa Chief Minister.
Organiser Aires Rodrigues said, "The march will be held on Tuesday. Social activist Rajan Ghate, who is on an indefinite hunger-strike, will lead the march to Parrikar's residence in Dona Paula. The march will be attended by Goa NGOs, leading individuals and some political parties, including the Congress."
Girish Chodankar, State Congress President, confirmed his participation. Parrikar has been in and out of hospitals in Goa, Mumbai, New York and Delhi for nearly nine months.
He returned from New Delhi's All India Institute of Medical Sciences on October 14 and has not moved out of his private residence for any official event since.
Apart from the Opposition, which has been demanding his resignation for several months now, cabinet ministers from the ruling alliance conceded on Saturday that Parrikar's absence from office had brought the state administration to a standstill.
