After a high-octane election campaign and subsequent voting on February 4 in Goa, the political leaders are keeping their fingers crossed for the impending poll results. However, Goa Chief Minister Laxmikant Parsekar seems unperturbed, at least the latest image on his Facebook page suggests so.
Parsekar on February 23 posted an image with his bare upper torso in a forest resort pool, which has now gone viral on social media.
Parsekar, who has often given an impression of being a coy leader with his conservative attire look, took the social media by surprise. He faced a brief spell of trolling over the caption accompanying the photo, which was later edited.
The first caption, which accompanied Parsekar’s now-viral photo, quizzed his followers playfully. “Relaxing after elections. Guess who? Guess where?”
However, this was enough for his critics to take a dig at him.
“Soon ul rest forever,” said Ankit Salgaonkar on his timeline. While others like Rahul Matias de Lemos suggested that the Chief Minister should “develop six pack abs”.
Soon after the criticism, the photo caption was edited to read: “Communing with nature. A refreshing experience.”
40 constituencies in Goa went to polls on February 4, the results of which are scheduled to be declared six hours after the counting of votes on March 11.
