Goa chief minister Manohar Parrikar has once again clarified that he is not at all interested in joining the union cabinet once NDA government comes to power.

While result of the Lok Sabha election is still two days away, news is already making rounds that probable Prime Minister Narendra Modi has thought of his dream cabinet.

Parrikar’s name figures prominently in this list, either as the union home minister or union finance minister.

He was today morning referred as ‘tomorrow’s union finance minister’ at a function held at People’s high school to felicitate the teachers for securing 100 per cent result in all the four streams.

“Let me clarify once again that I am not interested in going to Delhi. I am comfortable in Goa as the chief minister”, he said.

 

Later, in the evening, while talking to media, he once against replied to the media’s question, asking how could he go to Delhi when he has not even contested as the MP.

“I have not been approached by a single national party leader with this request”, he claimed.

Parrikar is considered to be one of the Modi's close confident from the time the Goa chief minister openly promoted his name as the PM candidate in a conclave held in Goa, while sevreral BJP central leaders were opposing it.

Congratulations to Modi/Parricar

India does need firm hands and decision makers.

Comparing India and Chiha at a discussion, one of the speakers said, China talks less and does more. India is the opposite.

Lets give them a chance, with or without acedemic qualifications.

@N.Fernandes. We should congratulate Parrikar for ruling Goa as an ONE MAN ARMY. No one in Goa can challenge Parrikar. Atleast he has guts, which no one had in the past. He rule Goa & Goans at his finger tips. Everyone in Goa is scared of Parrikar. Example: Micky, Caitu, Mauvin and other MLAs though not from BJP started campaigning for BJP. So much they are scared of Parrikar. Congratulations to Mr. Parrikar.

The CM Mr Parrikar is right. In Goa he can rule as a Dictator and does so .

In New Delhi he will become just become a sychophant of Mr Modi.

It is a known fact that Mr Parrikar likes to rule and administer Goa as a "one man rule". His current MLA in Goa are mere puppets.
