BJP leader Manohar Parrikar will be

sworn in as chief minister of Goa tomorrow.

"I have tendered my resignation as Defence Minister and
have sent it to the PMO. I will be taking the oath (as Goa
chief minister) tomorrow evening, along with the cabinet

ministers," Parrikar told PTI today.

Asked how many ministers would be sworn in, Parrikar
said, "The decision on the number of ministers and other
issues are being currently worked out. Once the cabinet is
finalised, we will inform the media."
Goa Governor Mridula Sinha has invited Parrikar to form
the next government in the coastal state after he submitted a

letter of support from 21 legislators yesterday.

Three MLAs from the Goa Forward Party, three from the MGP

and two Independents have pledged their support to Parrikar.

The BJP, which came second by winning 13 seats in the
40-member assembly after the Congress (17 seats), managed to
garner support from other parties and Independents to attainmajority under Parrikar.
