He said, “I will serve Goa till my last breath” – Goa late CM Manohar Parrikar
Manohar Parrikar, Goa’s Chief Minister and former Defence Minister of India, took his last breath on Sunday evening after a fluctuating heath for several days. He fought against his pancreatic cancer for a long one year due to his will power. In recent months this year, he appeared in public with a tube in his nose and with weak heath. The Central Government declared March 18 as national mourning day and 7 days mourning for Goa. He was great and a simple man with full of knowledge.
He’s Simple, Honest, Dedicated and Efficient Man with Soldiers fighting spirit.— Chowkidar BJPBUZZ (@BJPBUZZ) March 17, 2019
He’s the first IITian to become MLA.
If there’s any Synonyms for Simplicity then it should be a #ManoharParikkar Sir.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi and other political leaders paid tribute to Mr Parrikar as state funeral with full military honors. The funeral parade was attended by many people as he was a great leader of the nation. His last rites were executed at Miramar Beach. President Ram Nath Kovind also tweeted on his death.
