Prof Swaminathan: The late Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar – A Tribute
The passing away of a dynamic and visionary chief minister at a rather young age is an irreparable loss. I recall the deep interest he took in the recommendations of a Task Force I had chaired on Eco-development Plan for Goa. He told me that he would ensure that Goa becomes a model for sustainable development based on sound principles of ecology, economics, social and gender equity. We have lost a leader who was committed to the eco-development of Goa. The best tribute we can pay to his memory is the implementation of the eco-development plan for this beautiful and historic state.
