PANJIM: Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar on Saturday said that a gushing hole at the bottom of the grounded vessel Lucky 7 is making its movement difficult and in turn delaying the removal process. He, however, stated that the government is fully concerned about its removal.

“Lucky 7 will be removed and the government is fully concerned about the removal of the vessel. There is a gushing hole and if you pull, it then it might sink somewhere about 200 to 300 metres ahead and that will be another problem,” Parrikar said, after paying tribute at the memorial to Goa’s first chief minister Dayanand Bandodkar, at Miramar

“Taking in all the factors, the bottom of the vessel will be sealed and then removed. It’s a technical reason and it is not difficult to remove. After removal and when taking for repairs, the vessel should float in the sea for at least 12 to 13 hours,” he said.

Speaking on the election campaign, Parrikar said, “Till now 55 per cent campaigning is done and by August 15 the first round shall be over. After that whatever pockets are remaining will be finished within 2-3 days. I am going from colonies to colonies for campaigning.”
