Goa Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar, who has been recuperating from a surgery at his private home in Goa since October 14 inspected a half-constructed bridge on the Mandovi river on Sunday.


Parrikar was seen with a tube in his nose and was walking with support, according to NDTV

He also visited another bridge over the Zauri river near Panjim. 


NDTV also reported a senior functionary saying that the CM travelled 6 km from Porvorim to Merces to inspect the bridge. 

Parrikar was also accompanied by two doctors throughout the inspections.


The news of him doing his job despite illness got applauded from the internet, with people praising him for his commitment.

While some others were of the opinion that it was inhuman for him to be forced to work and do photo ops in this condition. 

This was the CM’s first public appearance since he spent months at a hospital in Delhi. Despite the criticism, it is quite heartening to see a politician being this committed to his job despite all odds.
