PANJIM: Revenue and IT Minister Rohan Khaunte on Tuesday said that Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar chaired the Investment Promotion Board meeting “effectively”.
Emerging from the 30-minute meeting at the CM’s private residence in Dona Paula, Khaunte said the chief minister looked good. “What can I say? He chaired the meeting and chaired it effectively,” Khaunte said, suggesting that the CM discussed each and every item on the agenda threadbare.
