CM: Lokayukta in two days
Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar has said the government would announce the name of Goa Lokayukta within the next couple of days.
During an informal talk with newsmen, Parrikar said the government has shortlisted some names and the Lokayukta will be finalised in the next three days. “There were some people who raised doubts about the government’s intention to appoint the Lokayukta. These people will get a slap on their faces for their unnecessary criticism as the government will finalise the Lokayukta within the next three days,” he said.
The BJP had promised in its election manifesto to appoint Goa Lokayukta within 100 days of coming to power. The government had faced flak from its opponents for its failure to appoint the Lokayukta within the set deadline. [H]
