Congress continues showcasing its shallow mentality by insulting Manohar Parrikar

In September last year, when Parrikar was being treated in AIIMS, Congress had approached the governor unsuccessfully to stake claim to form the government in the state.

Although the Chief Minister of Goa, Manohar Parrikar‘s dedication towards his work despite his ailing health is worth being applauded, the Congress has been displaying their callous attitude by continuing to assault Parrikar on the pretext of his health.

The former defence minister who is suffering from a pancreatic ailment was admitted to AIIMS on Thursday evening for a routine check-up.

Meanwhile, exhibiting his crassness, Goa Congress leader Reginaldo Lourenco, took to Twitter to scorn the CM of Goa for his physical condition saying that “He should honourably resign or rather give charge to somebody. I’m not here to dictate terms, his party will dictate terms to him. But don’t go to assembly with that pipe in nose, all things coming out from your pocket. It doesn’t suit you.”

While the Congress’ leader was busy showcasing his uncouth intellect, there are many on Twitter who were quick to school the minister for the same.

Meanwhile, Reginaldo Lourenco is the same politician who had chosen the dubious website ‘Indiascoop‘ which is known for sharing unverifiable news, to spread misinformation about the total cost of Parrikar’s treatment so far.

However, this is not the first time Congress has mocked the ailing chief minister. The  Goa Pradesh Congress Committee (GPCC) president Girish Chodankar had poked fun at the CM by saying that he should come back to “hosh” (Consciousness) before speaking about Josh. This comment came after Parrikar addressed his first public gathering since he was diagnosed with a pancreatic ailment. “How is the josh? How is the josh?” asked Parrikar at an event, adding that he would transfer his josh to the audience.

Jaipal Reddy, a former union minister and senior Congress leader has gone a step further to mock CM Parrikar’s battle with cancer and stated that he is ‘sticking to his chair like a leech’.

In September last year, when Parrikar was being treated in AIIMS, Congress had approached the governor unsuccessfully to stake claim to form the government in the state.

When their attempt to form a government was foiled after BJP announced that Parrikar will continue as CM, Congress in Goa had floated the conspiracy theory that BJP is only letting him continue as CM because he knows some ‘secrets of Rafale deal’.

In another despicable display of power lust, a Congress leader in the state had again floated the theory that Parrikar might already be dead. Despite the Goa government clarifying that CM Parrikar has been clearing files from his hospital and there is no work pending from the CM’s office, state Congress spokesperson Jitendra Deshprabhu had demanded that BJP should either ‘show’ Parrikar in person or conduct his ‘Shradh’ (death rituals).

But what can be expected from the team, whose chief (Rahul Gandhi), himself has stooped to such low standards, that he used his meeting with the ailing minister for cheap political gains.

Rahul Gandhi, on his recent visit to Goa, had met the CM Manohar Parrikar, calling it a courtesy visit. Talking about the meeting later at a rally, Rahul Gandhi had claimed that Parrikar had told him that Parrikar had “nothing to do with the new Rafale deal orchestrated by Mr Narendra Modi to benefit Anil Ambani”.

Reacting to comments made by Rahul Gandhi, Manohar Parrikar had sent a strongly worded letter to the Congress president. He said that he felt let down that Rahul Gandhi had used the visit for his ‘petty political gains’. In his letter, Parrikar lambasted at the Congress president for making false statements and raised serious doubts over his sincerity and purpose of visit.

The Goa Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar (62) has been diagnosed with a pancreatic ailment in February last year. Since then he has been admitted to hospitals in Delhi, New York, Mumbai and Goa for his treatment.

He is currently admitted for a routine check-up at the Institute Rotary Cancer hospital at AIIMS under the observation of oncologist Atul Sharma. His condition is said to be stable.
