Pramod Sawant is new Goa CM and says Parrikar loyalist with strong RSS ties

The politician, recently seen in the RSS uniform at a Sangh event, was on Monday sworn in as the new chief minister of Goa following Manohar Parrikar’s death. 46-year-old Pramod Sawant has come a long way. The two-time MLA from Sankhalim in North Goa, Sawant, was Speaker of the state Assembly, and a dedicated RSS worker.

His elevation to the top post in the coastal state followed hectic parleys between the BJP and its alliance partners. But it didn’t quite come as a surprise, because those who understand the state’s polity were already expecting Parrikar’s right-hand man to be given the responsibility.
