Cannot meet Vasco family because of media glare: CM

Putting up a strange defense to the question raised by Fatorda MLA Vijai Sardesai on the failure on part of the Chief Minister or any of his Cabinet colleagues from meeting the family of the Vasco rape survivor, Chief Minister, Manohar Parrikar stated that the reason he has not met the family is because of the media glare which will lead to exposing the identity of the victim.

The CM went to extent of alleging that the MLA Sardesai would have himself sent the media to report on the CM meeting the family, as he (Sardesai) has no concern about protecting the interest of the family but in politicizing the rape incident.

Replying to the allegations when questioned later by GoaChronicle.com, Sardesai stated, “The CM likes to dodge serious questions. He could have met the family quietly without media knowing about it. But he has not yet met with the family and that is a fact. He found time to meet with the family of the deceased PSI Abhishek Gomes. It is strange to understand what is stopping him from meeting family. As far as media glare is concerned, so far, media has been responsible and even knowing the identity of the family have been responsible in their reporting.
