How Amit Shah and Nitin Gadkari helped BJP retain power in Goa

Prime News, National (Panaji), March 20:- BJP president Amit Shah and Union minister Nitin Gadkari played behind-the-scenes roles in ensuring the party retained power in Goa, after the death of Manohar Parrikar, sources familiar with the developments said.

The impasse over government formation, which included dealing with stubborn allies wanting to extract their pound of flesh, was resolved with deft handling of the situation by the two senior BJP leaders, party sources said Tuesday.

In 2017 also, after the BJP failed to get a majority in the state Assembly polls, Gadkari had flown in here to help the BJP in cobbling up an alliance with smaller parties in the coastal state, after which a government was formed under Parrikar’s leadership. (MR, Inputs: Agencies).
