In a late night development, Governor Mridula Sinha on Sunday appointed Manohar Parrikar as chief minister of Goa and asked him to prove majority on the floor of the state assembly within 15 days. Parrikar is likely to take oath on Tuesday.

The BJP delegation led by Parrikar had met Governor on Sunday evening staking claim to form the government. BJP, which won 13 seats, now claims it has letters of support from MGP, GFP and Independents to take its tally up to 21 in a 40-member house.

On Monday, Parrikar is expected to meet Prime Minister Narendra Modi in Delhi and submit his resignation from the Union council of ministers.

The Bharatiya Jananta Party decided on Sunday to let Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar return to Goa as CM if that’s the only way they could form the government there.

The move was made after Maharashtrawadi Gomantak Party (MGP) and Goa Forward Party (GFP) along with a couple of Independents lined up with BJP on the condition that Parrikar would return as CM.

Road & Transport Minister Nitin Gadkari, who was also in Goa, made it official that Parrikar will be BJP’s CM candidate. “He will have to tender in his resignation as Defence Minister once he is Goa CM but he has not given it yet,” he told reporters.
