No one’s name fixed yet: Goa’s BJP Chief (New CM of Goa)
Meanwhile, Goa BJP Chief Vinay Tendulkar has said on reports that Sawant will be made the next CM, that nothing is confirmed yet. In a way, presenting himself as a claimant, Tendulkar said, ‘My name is coming, everyone’s name is coming. Such names will continue to come. Now the legislators will sit and decide, today (the announcement of CM’s name) will be confirmed. ‘
Tell that in 2017 no party or coalition got a majority in the Goa assembly elections. The Congress emerged as the largest party, but with the help of Union Minister Nitin Gadkari’s rapid and handsome Parrikar’s face, the BJP managed to form the government. Manohar Parrikar was then the Defense Minister at the Center, but the smaller parties decided to support the BJP on condition of making him (Parrikar) CM.
