Panaji: The BJP’s central leadership will decide whether Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar will continue in the central government or will be sent back to state politics, party President Amit Shah said on Wednesday.
“I get a lot of calls and letters requesting for Parrikar to be sent back. Parrikar is doing a great job for the country as Defence Minister. The party has decided to keep all its options open. We will decide after elections. But whether he is in Goa or there (in Delhi) Parrikar thinks about Goa 24×7,” he said.
Imploring voters to cast ballot in favour of the BJP in the February 4 polls, Shah said: “Press the lotus button so hard, that the button will be pressed here and the current will go to Italy.”
