mr parrikar suffers from leader of opposition syndrom. It is once a l o p always a l o p. He still feels he will shout so and so is chor people will clap and cheer. Even after 9 months of being cm if he does not understand that if he accuse someone of some crime and take no action people will conclude that he has compromised with that person next day. Take action against churchil and ravi mr parrikar. Or else you are not fit to be cm.
