Senior BJP leader Pramod Sawant will be sworn in as Chief Minister of Goa today for the second consecutive term. The swearing-in ceremony will be held at Dr. Syama Prasad Mookerjee’s stadium near Panaji at 11 am. Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Defence Minister Rajnath Singh, and other dignitaries will be present on the occasion. More than 10,000 people are likely to attend the event at the stadium. Dr. Sawant is an MLA from Sankhalim in North Goa. He was sworn in as the chief minister of Goa for the first time in March 2019 after the death of Manohar Parrikar.
In the recent assembly polls, BJP won 20 seats, one short of the majority in the 40-member House. Three independent MLAs and two legislators of the Maharashtrawadi Gomantak Party (MGP) have extended their support to the BJP.
