Parrikar occupied the CM's chair

Chief minister Manohar Parrikar will present his maiden budget on 21 March.

The Assembly session would begin on 19 March.

The first day would be dedicated to administering oath to the newly elected legislators.

This would be the first time in the new Assembly complex that almost 26 seats would be occupied by the ruling party MLAs.

Shiroda MLA Mahadev Naik would be the pro-tem speaker.

The BJP is yet to decide who would be the speaker and the deputy speaker.

“I will present a full-fledged budget, but we will take vote on account for three months and pass the full budget later on”, Parrikar told the media after the first cabinet meeting.

He has appointed Adv Atmaram Nadkarni the advocate general.

Meanwhile, Poriem MLA Pratapsing Rane submitted his resignation as the chairman of Kala Academy.

Parrikar has already asked for a report on all the political posts held in different corporations and semi-government bodies.

“Let the resignations come rather than me acting. After Kala Academy, there are others like Bal Bhavan etc”, he said.

Bal Bhavan chairperson post is held by Vijayadevi Rane for several years now.

Parrikar has already told Prasad Lolayekar, director of art and culture, to temporarily take charge of Kala Academy chairman. is now on Telegram & also Youtube. Kindly subscribe for free & remain updated.

Hope the budget will not cost the Middle class, and poor. and it benefits all those people who resides in Goa.

Govt. Should give benefits of 100% Medical support, at least to Poor people / widows /old age people /Children.

There is lot of sanitation problem, the labourersand truck drivers/cleaners etc., don't get proper sanitation so they spoil the open places and it effects the surrounding peoples but we cannot solve this problem by stopping them from not entering them in to Goa,as there necessary things attached to it. And also Goa is a tourist place, people would like to come here to see, then to work, then may settle here . in the proces till they setlle they may cause the problem because of the facilities not available, either from the owners the vehicles or house owners who give them the residence., so need to address. Water harvesting needs to be looked into as drinking water problem may arise in future. As we have seen in earlier BJP Govt there were lot of developments like roads etc., Expect equal preference to all the residence of Goa not like last BJP Govt.

Good to see him acting tough and vacating the Politicians accommodated in various corporations and commissions and other semi Government Bodies--running at tax payers' money....

It was an irony to see the local TV channels like Prudent and Goa 365, just giving a brief coverage of the swearing in ceremony instead of covering it in greater details. as it was an important even in the State. May be the channels have their own agenda...

It is time the BJP should think of having it's own or it's supporter's TV channel to make the masses aware of the programmes of the party and .their implementation...
