Earlier on December 17, Parrikar made a surprise public appearance by visiting an upcoming bridge site — his pet project — near Panaji, along with officials and taking stock of the construction activities there.
The photographs, some of which were issued by the Chief Minister’s Office (CMO), showed a gaunt-looking Parrikar, with medical appendage suspended from his nose and wearing a safety helmet, speaking to government officials and engineers who are overseeing the construction of the third bridge across the Mandovi river off Panaji.
“Manohar Parrikar visited the construction site on the third Mandovi bridge and inspected the progress of work. Officials of GSIDC (Goa State Infrastructure Development Corporation) and L&T engineers were present on the site to brief the CM. He later also inspected the ongoing work of the new Zuari bridge,” a statement issued by the CMO said.
