Unfurl tricolour on Goa Liberation Day, it is much easier than inspecting bridges: Congress to Manohar Parrikar

Panaji: After Goa chief minister Manohar Parrikar's much discussed visit to inspect two under-construction bridges, the Congress on Monday said he should show the same efforts to unfurl the tricolour on 19 December to mark the Liberation Day of Goa.

Goa was liberated from Portuguese rule on 19 December, 1961. Goa Pradesh Congress Committee president Girish Chodankar said the party will appreciate if the chief minister unfurled the tricolour on 19 December and delivered the Liberation Day address.

"To unfurl the tricolour is a much easier and honourable job than inspecting bridges," Chodankar said.

Earlier in the day, the BJP accused the Congress of politicising the health condition of Parrikar. On Sunday, Parrikar inspected two under-construction bridges on Mandovi and Zuari rivers.

This was the first time the chief minister was seen in public since returning to Goa on 14 October post hospitalisation in Delhi's AIIMS.
