Congress demands needs full-time CM in Goa

Congress demands needs full-time CM in Goa

"We are going strong under leadership of Manohar Parrikar, who will be our only Chief Minister", Rane said adding "Congress will not be able to get the magical number of 21 in Goa even if they try their level best".

Mr Shah said that he had a conversation with ailing Goa Chief Minister Parrikar on telephone.

The 62-year-old left for the the United States on 6 March from Mumbai, where he was undergoing treatment at the Lilavati Hospital for a pancreatic ailment.

In the message, Parrikar, who is undergoing treatment in the United States since March this year, said that for the last two months due to his health condition, he could not meet the party workers.

"The coming year is very important because of the Lok Sabha election, which is likely to be held in April or May". He then exhorted the BJP workers to start preparing for the upcoming Lok Sabha elections in 2019.

"BJP is such a political party in which a person selling a tea can also become the Prime Minister of a great democracy like India", he said.

Addressing party workers at a meeting held at Dr Shyama Prasad Mukherjee Stadium near Panaji, Shah said the BJP had won all the assembly polls held post 2014. "The BJP will form the government in Karnataka on May 15 evening after the results", Shah said.

The three-member panel formed by Parrikar comprises ministers Sudin Dhavalikar (MGP), Francis D'Souza (BJP) and Vijai Sardesai (Goa Forward Party, another ruling coalition partner). The video message was played at a BJP workers' meeting that was addressed by party president Amit Shah.

This is the first time Parrikar has communicated with his party workers via video, the last time being when he was about to leave for the United States for treatment in March this year.

Rane said that the aim of BJP should be "Congress-mukt Goa".

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".
