The election season is over and days long speculations and debate over who will form government in the two states- Manipur and Goa too came to an end on Thursday. Goa Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar who sworn in on Tuesday also passed the floor test with flying colours. Bharatiya Janata Party has now formed government in both the states and it seems that instead of putting an end to the jibes and all the drama, it has only fuelled the party’s fire. Manohar Parrikar has thrice been the Chief Minister of Goa and this is the minister’s fourth term. After PM Narendra Modi’s party came to power in Uttar Pradesh with a clear majority and also formed government in other states, many party ministers had some one or the other to thank and wish well for but Manohar Parrikar chose rival party’s Rahul Gandhi and showered him with wishes.

Parrikar, after his floor test conference said he wishes Rahul Gandhi to lead Congress for long. Although the ex defence minister did not add to it, it is clear that he was hinting to Rahul Gandhi’s inefficiency as a leader because it is under his leadership that Congress has been witnessing a downfall, first example of which was seen in 2014 general elections and then in 2017 assembly elections. Congress leader Vishwajeet Rane without naming anyone too had taken a dig at Rahul Gandhi after the election results. He had said that there were ‘lapses and there was a failure on part of Congress leadership’
Manohar Parrikar’s Bhartiya Janata Party won 13 seats as against Congress’ 17 where are as Goa Forward Party and Maharashtrawadi Gomantak Party had three seats each in Goa Assembly Elections 2017.
Congress emerged as the single largest party in Goa.
