Amidst battling cancer, Goa CM Manohar Parrikar asks audience 'How is the Josh?'; draws loud applause
Goa Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar delivered a power packed dialogue from the film "Uri: The Surgical Strike" to draw a loud applause from the crowd, while inaugurating the Mandovi bridge in Panaji on Sunday.
"How's the Josh," said the former Defence minister, mic firmly in hand. That drew a loud cheer from those gathered in Goa's Panaji to see the inauguration of the 5.1 km-long bridge over the Mandovi river. Parrikar, with a medical tube tapped on his nose , once again repeated the line to enthuse the audience and draw a louder applause
Mr Parrikar said the new bridge that has been given the name "Atal Setu" is India's third-longest cable-stayed bridge.
"With the support of Prime Minister Narendra Modi ji and Nitin Gadkari ji, Goa is making rapid progress on infrastructure development," Mr Parrikar tweeted on Sunday night. "There is opposition for everything. This mentality has developed. Goans should be positive now. This is my message today... With who's money is the bridge being built? Whose money is it? It is not my money. It is your money, people's money," Manohar Parrikar said, according to news agency IANS.
