PM Modi Congratulates Pramod Sawant, Says 'The Journey Begins': Highlights

BJP's Pramod Sawant was on Tuesday sworn in as the new chief minister of Goa.

BJP's Pramod Sawant was on Tuesday sworn in as the new chief minister of Goa. The 45-year-old takes over from former defence minister and four-time CM of Goa Manohar Parrikar, who was cremated at the Miramar beach on Monday.  At a much-delayed swearing-in ceremony, held around 2 am Tuesday, 11 other MLAs, part of the Mr Parrikar-led cabinet, were also sworn in as ministers. Manohar Ajgaonkar and Sudin Dhawalikar of Maharashtrawadi Gomantak Party (MGP), Vijai Sardesai of Goa Forward party (GFP) and Govind Gawde and Rohan Khaunte (both independents) took their oaths as cabinet ministers. The ceremony, held at a cramped Raj Bhavan, was to take place at 11 pm Monday but was delayed due to inexplicable reasons.
