News18

Panaji: The Bombay High Court here on Wednesday directed the Goa government to fill the post of Lokayukta, lying vacant since the tenure of Justice P K Misra (retd) ended on September 17, within the next three months. A division bench of Justice M S Sonak and Justice M S Jawalkar said the vacancy has to be filled as expeditiously as possible so that the Institution of Goa Lokayukta functions in the state.

The bench was hearing a petition filed by activist Aires Rodrigues claiming delay by the state government in initiating the process to fill the Lokayukta post. Advocate General (AG) Devidas Pangam told the bench that a communication has been sent to the registrar of the supreme court seeking names of eligible candidates.
