Manohar Parrikar to remain Goa Chief Minister, confirms Amit Shah

New Delhi, Sept 23 (IBNS); Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) supremo Amit Shah on Sunday said Manohar Parrikar will remain the Chief Minister of Goa.

Shah confirmed the development on Twitter.

Shah said the decision was taken after discussions with the BJP’s “core team”.

Parrikar is undergoing treatment in a Delhi hospital.

Parrikar, who returned from the US after a medical check-up, was admitted to a hospital in Goa recently.

He was later admitted to All India Institute of Medical Sciences in New Delhi on  Sept 15.

The Chief Minister has been suffering from illness for quite sometime now. 

Parrikar, a former Defence Minister, assumed his portfolio in 2017 after the BJP managed to garner support from other smaller parties to form a coalition government in the coastal state.

The smaller parties had said they would lend support to the saffron outfit if Parrikar was made the Chief Minister.
