Speaking to the media at the assembly complex here, Parrikar said the former Supreme Court judge tendered his resignation due "personal reasons".
Official sources said Reddy had resigned some days back as he wanted to devote time and attention to his ailing wife. The resignation was accepted by the government Wednesday.
Reddy was appointed Goa's first Lokayukta in March last year.
