The late Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar, who rose from a pracharak of the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) to become the country's Defence Minister and also chief minister of Goa, served the state four times as chief minister and had a three-year-long stint as Defence Minister in the Narendra Modi-led cabinet.

He was a leader who enjoyed acceptance from all sections of the BJP and beyond. He played a key role in making the BJP a force to reckon with in Goa, which remained for long a Congress bastion, with regional outfits having pockets of influence. Parrikar (63) breathed his last on Sunday after a long battle with cancer. His health, which has been fluctuating for a year, took a turn for the worse in the past two days. Parrikar had been on life support system since late Saturday night. 

Twitterati took this day to remember him and pay tribute to his golden days as a leader and Chief Minister of Goa. Here are some heart touching pictures shared by people on the social media platform, Twitter.
