    The petition was filed by former Goa Forward member Trajano D'Mello.

    Trajano has asked for a panel of experts to review the health status and release a bulletin regularly as the "chief ministry's post has to inspire confidence".

    The Congress has been demanding a "full-time" chief minister for the state in place of Parrikar. Last week, hundreds of people, including some Congress leaders, had marched to Parrikar's residence, demanding his resignation and a "full-time" chief minister.
