(Before It's News)

PANAJI: For Manohar Parrikar, who proved himself to be BJP’s best bet in Goa by sewing up a coalition and proving its majority on the floor of Assembly, it is a homecoming and another stint as chief minister of the coastal state. 

Despite failing to secure a simple majority in the polls, the BJP managed to win the support of two regional parties besides the backing of two Independents, outsmarting the Congress which emerged as the single largest party with 17 seats in th 40-member house. 

Right from the start of campaigning, the BJP had sent across a subtle message that if it wins, the government would be headed by Parrikar. 

Parrikar led the BJP’s campaign from the front. 

A metallurgical engineer from IIT Bombay, Parrikar, post-election, displayed splendid political acumen and skill in forging a coalition winning over the Maharashtrawadi Gomantak Party (MGP) and Goa Forward Party (GFP). 

Born in a middle class business family in Mapusa in north Goa, Manohar Gopalkrishna Prabhu Parrikar graduated to the BJP from the RSS ranks.
