I will return to Goa in next few weeks: Parrikar

Sriramulu

"The state has no fully functional CM and the BJP does not even bother to fulfill its responsibility towards that end by giving a full-fledged CM", Khalap told reporters in Chodankar's presence. "It will also form the next government in the state", Shah said. "Despite being in the U.S. for treatment, Parrikar is concerned about the party, which is a symbol of a true worker", Shah said.

"The coming year is very important, because of the 2019 Lok Sabha election, which is likely to be held in April or May next year".

BJP has repeatedly brushed aside the Congress party's claims of an administrative paralysis in the state and has pointed out that the government was functioning and implementing policies despite Parrikar's absence.

Recalling Parrikar's tenure as defence minister, Shah described him as a "hardworking person with a grip on administration".

Shah added that the party started with 10 members and now it has become the largest political party in the world with 11 crore party members.


He said the BJP's "soul" lies in its booth workers who are the focal point of the party.

Earlier speaking, State Health Minister Vishwajit Rane, Power Minister Pandurang Madkaikar, Panchayat Minister Mauvin Godinho and Deputy Speaker Michael Lobo expressed confidence in the stability of the coalition government, while laying scathing attack on Congress.

In Karnataka, the BJP and the Congress ran a high-decibel campaign.

On Saturday, the opposition Congress had called on the BJP president to "either give Goa its chief minister or he should take back this undemocratically installed government".

BJP state president Vinay Tendulkar also jumped into the fray stating "the party that changed three leaders in just one month, should not consider us like them to change chief minister".
