I am not keen to be CM: Parrikar

Speaking at a function held in Panjim organised by a few concerned Panjim citizens; senior BJP leader in Goa, Manohar Parrikar said that he is not keen in becoming the Chief Minister of Goa, but, instead he wants to be working towards ridding Goa of the corrupt politicians.

“If the people of Goa select us with a majority and the high command considers me for the CM candidate; then I might think about it. But, my terms are clear, I would not like to be the Chief Minister of a Cabinet if as BJP we would have to in the end take support of some corrupt politicians who are from other parties or independents.,” Parrikar expressed.

This stand has put to rest all rumours supposedly being spread by rival political parties indicating that Leader of Opposition has been manipulating the selection of the candidates so that in the eventuality of a BJP win, he would be come the Chief Ministerial candidate; it also closed the controversy being racked up on the BJP MP Shripad Naik’s entry into local politics. “I had recommended Shripad’s name. However, the BJP high command felt it was important for him to continue with his good job at the Centre.”
