Parrikar holds the Home portfolio in the state government.
Addressing a press conference here, All India Mahila Congress' Goa in charge Netta DSouza said that, as per media reports, there were 11 cases of rape registered in the state between April and end of May.
"Unfortunately, there is no one to protect them (women) today. With due respect to the Home Minister (Parrikar), who is ailing, there is no one to ensure the safety of women in the state," D'Souza said.
She alleged that Goa was on "ventilator" due to the absence of Parrikar and people were bearing the brunt of it.
