Three days after taking charge, Goa Chief Minister Pramod Sawant Friday called on Prime Minister Narendra Modi in New Delhi, his office said.

This was Sawant's first visit to the national capital, where he also met some Union ministers, after being sworn-in as the chief minister following the demise of Manohar Parrikar on Sunday last.

"Chief Minister Pramod Sawant meets Prime Minister Narendra Modi in Delhi," his office tweeted this evening.

During the day, Sawant also called on Union ministers Rajnath Singh and Nitin Gadkari, who is also the BJP's Goa in-charge.

The 46-year-old BJP chief minister, who took oath in the wee hours of Tuesday, left for New Delhi a day later to meet Modi and other members of his Cabinet.

"The chief minister met Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh in the afternoon and also Union Minister of Road Transport, Highways and Shipping Nitin Gadkari," his office said.

Gadkari had played a key role in holding talks with BJP's coalition partners on the formation of the party-led government under the leadership of Sawant.
