Name the minister having an affair: Parsekar

PTI, PANAJI | 20 April 2015 18:19 IST

With text messages doing rounds in Goa alleging that one of the state Cabinet ministers was responsible for the suicide of an NRI, Chief Minister Laxmikant Parsekar today said that if anyone has a proof against the minister, they should name him.


"Cellular text messages are being circulated about the involvement of one of my ministers (in a suicide case). If anyone has any proof they should name the minister," Parsekar told reporters here after the state cabinet meeting. 

The chief minister was referring to a text message that has gone viral in the state, which claims that an NRI committed suicide after he found that his wife was involved in an affair with a state cabinet minister. 

"When you mention a state cabinet minister in the text message, then you tend to point a finger at all the 11 ministers," he said. 

Goa has 12 cabinet ministers and one of them is a woman. 

"If anyone has any document linking the cabinet minister, he should come forward. But circulating such vague messages is bad and serious," said Parsekar. 

Responding to a question on another issue, the Chief Minister said his government was not protecting former minister Fransisco Miccky Pacheco, who is currently on the run after being convicted for slapping a government servant. 

Parsekar said that law should take it's own course. "If he was in the cabinet then you could have said that we are protecting him. He has already resigned," he said.
