Goa CM Manohar Parrikar's Passed Away

Four-time Goa Chief Minister and former Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar (63) passed away at his private residence near here on Sunday after a prolonged battle with pancreatic cancer for over a year.
 
Mr. Parrikar resigned as Chief Minister and served as Defence Minister from 2014-17 on the invitation of Prime Minister Narendra Modi. He returned to State politics to lead a coalition government of disparate parties and independents headed by the BJP, as Chief Minister in 2017, after Goa had a hung house and the BJP had lost power.
