“Goa is his home town. He has to come here to see how the state government is functioning, how the party is functioning, how his friends are, how his family is. He is concerned about all this,” Parsekar said addressing a public meeting in Mapusa town Monday evening, where Parrikar was present.

“There are some political opponents who raise questions about his visits to Goa. He is the Defence Minister of the entire nation. Goa is part of India. So what’s wrong about his visit here?” the chief minister asked.
