Goa: CM Parrikar speaks to PM on his stand on Governor's resignation
While refusing to comment on the issue, Parrikar said that he is also not against the party in its demand.

Panaji: Goa Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar on Wednesday said that he has communicated to the Prime Minister, his stand on demand of resignation of Goa Governor BV Wanchoo, by the local BJP unit, over the helicopter purchase scam.

"As a Chief Minister, I have told the Prime Minister whatever I feel about it (on the resignation demand). The communication (between him, PM and Governor) is confidential, I do not think it is right for you all to ask what I told to the Prime Minister," Parrikar said. The CM's statement came two days after BJP Goa Unit held a press conference demanding resignation of the Governor for being investigated in the Augusta Westland VVIP Chopper purchase issues.

While refusing to comment on the issue, Parrikar said that he is also not against the party in its demand. "I am not against the party. But I don't want to comment on the issue. Party does not have constitutional obligations but as far as the Chief Minister is considered, I have them," he said.
