Manhohar Parrikar

Sep 16 : BJP Goa President Vinay Tendulkar said that Manohar Parrikar will continue to be the Chief Minister of Goa.

“There will be no change in the leadership. Manohar Parrikar is the CM of Goa, he will continue to be the CM, ” Vinay Tendulkar said.

Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh on Sunday visited AIIMS to inquire about the health of Goa Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar, who is suffering from advanced pancreatic cancer.

“Also spoke to the doctors who are supervising his treatment. I pray for his good health and quick recovery,” Rajnath Singh tweeted.

Parrikar, 62, was on Saturday admitted at the All India Institute for Medical Sciences (AIIMS) for treatment and examination. He has been in and out of hospitals in the US, Mumbai and Goa since February.

While a  team of central BJP leaders is expected to arrive in Goa on Sunday to assess and recommend to the Centre a political roadmap for the BJP-led coalition government.

Speaking to reporters, state BJP president Vinay Tendulkar said the team led by BJP General Secretary Ram Lal was expected to arrive on Sunday afternoon.

“He will arrive in the afternoon after he will meet senior party leaders and coalition partners to decide on the future course of action,” Tendulkar said.

While a section of senior BJP leaders feel that dissolution of the state Assembly and a mid-term poll is the way ahead, instead of thrusting senior leaders at the helm of government, some legislators believe that the government should continue at any cost.

A proposal mooted in the presence of Parrikar on Friday to make coalition ally and Public Works Department Minister Sudin Dhavalikar of the Maharashtrawadi Gomantak Party a Deputy Chief Minister and an officiating CM has been shot down by another key ally Vijai Sardesai, the Town and Country Planning Minister and Goa Forward President.

Ram Lal will meet officials from the BJP, allies as well as supporting Independent MLAs in a bid to forge a political strategy and finalise options for the post of Chief Minister, before recommending the same to BJP President Amit Shah on Monday.
