Taking a dig at the Congress Party, newly-elected Goa Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar on Tuesday asked the grand old party as to why didn't the party approached to the Governor if they had the 'support'.
The former defence minister further acknowledged that the mandate is fractured, but with 22 MLAs together, the vote share was more than sufficient.
"Its post poll alliance," he said.
Parrikar yesterday quit as the defence minister, a post he had been holding since November 2014 after first reshuffle of Prime Minister Narendra Modi's Cabinet.
Parrikar today took oath as the 13th Chief Minister of Goa.
Goa Governor Mridula Sinha administered the oath of office to Parrikar at the Raj Bhavan here.
