Goa Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar has removed two Ministers from his cabinet as they were hospitalised. But, Parrikar was himself admitted to the AIIMS in New Delhi for treatment and went abroad for advanced medical care. The BJP top leadership did not remove him from his post. There are reports Prime Minister Narendra Modi and BJP President Amit Shah were scared of removing Parrikar from his post as he might expose Rafale deal. Manohar was Defence Minister when the deal was finalised for the purchase of 36 fighter planes.
