Like Christ, Manohar Parrikar built bridges, not walls: Goa minister


Panaji: A senior minister in the Goa government Thursday showered praise on ailing Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar, saying that like Jesus Christ, he built bridges, not walls.

Goa Forward Party chief and Town and Country Planning Minister Vijai Sardesai was speaking on a motion in the state Assembly to congratulate Parrikar for construction of Atal Setu, a third bridge on the river Mandovi.

“The 5.1-km longest cable-stayed bridge in India which was inaugurated by Manohar Parrikar is actually a technological marvel and the chief minister gave us a message,” Sardesai said.
