Earlier today, Mr Sawant visited former chief minister Manohar Parrikar’s house near Panaji and met his family members. He also went to the Mahalaxmi temple before proceeding to the office. 
Speaking to reporters, Pramod Sawant credited Manohar Parrikar for his political guidance during his journey from an MLA to the legislative assembly speaker and now chief minister. 

Mr Sawant informed that Sudin Dhavalikar and Vijai Sardesai would be appointed as deputy chief ministers in his cabinet.  He said that his government’s priority will be to complete the projects launched by Mr Parrikar, especially those related to social welfare schemes. He added that portfolios would be distributed to ministers very soon.
