Presiding over his first cabinet meeting after taking oath as Chief Minister, the Pramod Sawant-led government has said it will provide three cooking gas cylinders free of cost to households in Goa, as promised by the BJP in its election manifesto.

In a tweet on Monday evening, Sawant said, Chaired the first meeting after taking oath as CM. The Cabinet has decided to formulate the 3 free cylinder scheme as promised in the BJP manifesto from the new financial year.

Before the Goa Assembly elections held last month, the BJP had in its poll manifesto promised three LPG cylinders free of cost per year, if voted to power.

Sawant also told reporters on Monday that resumption of iron ore mining and creating employment were his priorities during the current tenure.

On his opponents referring to him as an accidental CM, Sawant said this time he is elected and not selected as the state's chief minister.

Sawant had taken charge of the top post in 2019 after the death of then CM Manohar Parrikar.

In the recently concluded Assembly elections, which the BJP fought under Sawant's leadership, the party won 20 seats in the 40-member House.
