Newly-sworn in Goa chief minister Pramod Sawant has said he will take forward the legacy of his predecessor Manohar Parrikar as he admitted he had a “big responsibility” before him. Parrikar, who was diagnosed with advanced pancreatic cancer in February last year, died on Sunday evening. Political uncertainty arose in Goa on Monday after a decision by the BJP top brass to elevate Sawant, the Speaker in the state.
