Before taking charge, the chief minister visited residence of former chief minister Manohar Parrikar at his private residence at Dona Paula near the city and also Mahalaxmi Temple in the city.

At the residence of Parrikar, the Chief Minister met sons of the former Chief Minister Utpal and Abhijaat.
