MGP going, GFP undecided, wants clarity; Matters related to State’s governance likely to be discussed

PANJIM: Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar will meet the alliance partners at the All India Institute of Medical Sciences, Delhi on Friday. 

Sources said that the CM will meet the heads of alliance partners Maharashtrawadi Gomantak Party (MGP) and Goa Forward Party (GFP), besides Independent MLAs Revenue Minister Rohan Khaunte and Art and Culture Minister Govind Gaude and Prasad Gaonkar.

“The alliance partners have been called for a meeting by the CM in Delhi on October 12 at AIIMS where he is admitted,” a senior official in the Chief Minister's Office said. He added that Parrikar would discuss matters related to the State's governance during the meeting.

PWD Minister Ramkrishna (Sudin) Dhavalikar confirmed he will be visiting Delhi to meet the CM. “I do not know how many ministers have been called but I have got a message and I will go,” Dhavalikar said.

On the other hand, Goa Forward’s Vijai Sardesai said he is still undecided. “The meeting is on October 12 but I am still unsure. Let more clarity come on the meeting,” he told Herald.

 “I have been invited for the meeting with the chief minister in Delhi. I don't know who else is invited,” Gawade said, adding that he has not been informed about the agenda for the meeting.

This would be the first formal meeting chaired by Parrikar since he was admitted in AIIMS last month. Highly placed sources said he is likely to distribute additional portfolios to his Cabinet ministers during this week.

“A discussion is likely during the meeting about portfolios to be distributed to the allies,” a source said.

BJP president Amit Shah had last month said Parrikar would continue as Chief Minister and that there would be reshuffle of his Cabinet soon. Later, two ailing ministers Francis D’Souza and Pandurang Madkaikar had been dropped from the Cabinet and were replaced with Milind Naik and Nilesh Cabral.

Questions over the stability of the government have been raised by the Opposition Congress because of Parrikar’s illness.
