Adv. Aires Rodrigues has today strongly condemned Goa Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar for offering to personally along with his friends fund any NGO or activist to file a petition on the Mhadei issue.
Adv. Rodrigues has stated that while speaking at the Goa Legislative Assembly on the Mhadei issue yesterday Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar had stated that he was ready to personally fund and would also get his friends to pitch in towards the expenses incurred by any NGO or activist who is ready to file a petition on the Mhadei issue before the Supreme Court or the Green Tribunal.
Pointing out that proposing or funding any litigation before any Court was absolutely illegal and a very corrupt act, “It is no surprise that such a reckless suggestion had come from Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar who now seems to have clearly lost his mental balance,” expressed Rodrigues.
Adv. Rodrigues has stated that a transcript of yesterday’s highhanded statement made by the Chief Minister would be sent to the Chief Justice of India and the Chief Justice of the Bombay High Court to draw their attention to the despicable manner in which the Chief Minister had offered to circumvent the laid down law on filing petitions.
