‘Will try to work as hard as Manohar Parrikar’: Goa CM Sawant
Pramod Sawant has been appointed as the chief minister of Goa. He visited ex-Goa CM late Manohar Parrikar’s residence before taking in-charge of CM’s office. “It will be very difficult to continue without Manohar Parrikar,” said Pramod Sawant. He also said that he would try to work as hard as Manohar Parrikar. Sawant was initially scheduled to be appointed as the CM at 11 pm on Monday but it was pushed back as the BJP deliberated with allies late into the night to secure his position as the consensus candidate for the chief minister’s post. Sawant took oath at 1.50 am in Raj Bhawan.
