Appointing two deputy chief ministers is a big joke and it has no constitutional sanctity.

Their appointment is nothing but a waste of public funds. This is the opinion expressed by constitutional expert advocate Cleofato Almeida Coutinho.

The pulls and pressure from the coalition partners has compelled the BJP to appoint two deputy chief ministers while Dr Pramod Sawant was sworn in as new chief minister after the sad demise of Manohar Parrikar.

MGP leader Sudin Dhavalikar and Goa Forward leader Vijai Sardesai were sworn in as ministers because constitutional doesn’t allow it. Later, CM issued just one executive order, stating that they would be called Deputy Chief Ministers.
