New Delhi: Manohar Parrikar, the Defence Minister of India, has resigned on Sunday. Speculations are being made that Parrikar will hold office of the Chief Minister of Goa.
Though BJP did not secure any good position in Goa’s elections and just got 13 votes in the assembly of 40, even less than Congress which got 17 seats.
However, Maharashtrawadi Gomantak Party (MGP) and Goa Forward Party (GFP) ensured their support to government led by Parrikar. Both parties secured 3 seats each. Independent candidates also showed their favor to Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP).
Parrikar meeting with the Goa governor is underway, reports Indian media.
Till yesterday, after election results, BJP and Congress were locked in post-poll battle to secure the alliance of smaller parties to settle up the government. But BJP, who was already hopeful to get support from small parties and independent candidates is finally going to establish its government in Goa state.
