Parrikar to begin third section of therapy, says Vijay Sardesai

PANAJI: Chief minister will start the third phase of his treatment in the US from Monday, town and country planning minister said here.
“I spoke to him at length… he is keeping track of the state’s affairs and clued in to the happenings in Goa,” Sardesai said after the cabinet advisory committee meeting on Tuesday.

Parrikar, before leaving for the US for treatment, had set up a three-member committee to advise the government in his absence but retained all decision-making powers with himself.

“Parrikar called us during the meeting. The chief minister sounded very positive,” Sardesai said. The state will file an affidavit in the high court of Bombay at Goa on Wednesday about the quantity of ore that has been extracted and that is lying inside and outside the mining leases.
