Alina to be inducted on Friday

 

Alina Saldanha, the BJP candidate who was elected unopposed in the recent Cortalim by-poll, would be inducted into the Goa Cabinet on June 8.

Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar has confirmed this.

Alina would take oath as a Member of Legislative Assembly on June 4, Parrikar told reporters last evening here.

The Chief Minister said she would be given some "lighter portfolios" for now, as she was a newcomer in politics.

Alina's late husband Matanhy Saldanha was a minister in the Parrikar Cabinet.

His untimely death necessitated the by-election.

She was elected unopposed on May 21 as all the other candidates, including that of Congress, withdrew from the fray.
