Portfolios: Parsekar, Avertano, Milind get a bit; Alina left out

GOANEWS DESK, PANAJI | 08 October 2013 08:20 IST

As expected, chief minister Manohar Parrikar allocated one or two minor portfolios to his cabinet colleagues while retaining major responsibilities with himself.

Alina Saldanha is the only minister not being allocated any new portfolio.

Comparatively, a major portfolio of Information and Publicity Parrikar has chosen to allocate to first-time minister Milind Naik, besides Printing and Stationary.

Similarly, ‘independent’ minister Avertano Furtado from Salcete (Navelim) gets comparatively a major portfolio of Rural Development Agency.

With casinos becoming major revenue generating ‘economy’ and an emerging lobby, Captain of Ports becomes a major portfolio, which has been allotted to senior minister Laxmikant Parsekar.

The ministers, who have been allocated two portfolios each, are deputy chief minister Francisco D’Souza, Mahadev Naik and Milind Naik.
