Goa cabinet expansion & portfolios by weekend: Parsekar

PTI, PANAJI | 11 November 2014 17:56 IST

Goa Chief Minister Laxmikant Parsekar will expand his cabinet and allocate portfolios to his ministers over the coming weekend.

Portfolios would be allocated by Saturday after consulting former chief minister Manohar Parrikar, Parsekar said in Panaji on Tuesday.

Parsekar was inducted as chief minister last Saturday after Parrikar took over as the new Union Defence Minister. Nine others were also sworn in as ministers.

The government is yet to fill two more posts to make the entire cabinet of 12 ministers. He said that he would retain majority of portfolios which were with his predecessor.

"All the portfolios which are crucial for functioning of the chief minister will be retained by me," he said, adding, he would decentralise the entire functioning of the government.

"I will not interfere in the functioning of their (ministers) ministries. They will have all right to function the way they want. I will just be guiding them," Parsekar said, hinting at Parrikar's style of working, who was accused of wielding control over all the ministries.
