Goa Pradesh Congress Committee President Girish Chodankar speaking at the taluka-wise “Jan Aakrosh” agitation demanding the resignation of CM Manohar Parrikar said that “one junior IPS officer and another junior IAS officer who are Parrikar’s confidantes are running the entire State of Goa. Even the State Chief Secretary is not respected by these officers who do as they please. In the General Administration department, nobody listens even to the Chief Secretary as everyone knows that it is these two junior officers who are Parrikar’s cronies who are running the state and who are actually calling the shots.
In the police department, people consider this particular junior IPS officer to be more powerful than the DGP. Instead it is the other way around. Both these two junior officers order and direct the CS and the DGP as they are considered to be the voice of Parrikar. They are running the State at their own whims and fancy, Chodankar said.
He was speaking at the Jan Aakrosh agitation in Canacona, organised by the Goa Pradesh Congress Committee.
