PANAJI: Minister Mauvin Godinho today said that he will ensure that this government gets an advantage and that Dr. Pramod Sawant becomes a tall leader.
“I will make sure that this government gets an advantage and that Dr. Pramod Sawant becomes a tall leader. It shows how big Goa is as the Prime Minister just came in for a short visit to attend the swearing-in,” said Godinho.
He further said that it is good to see that Pramod Sawant has included me in his cabinet for the second time.
When asked about continuing as the transport minister, Godinho said that it is up to the Chief Minister to decide on the portfolio.
When asked to comment on statements made by the opposition, which has alleged in-fighting in the BJP over the issue of chief ministership as one of the reasons for the delay in the formation of the government,
Godinho said: “How can the opposition talk? They neither have a state president nor an opposition leader in place”.
