Panaji: At Mason de Amori polling booth in the city, the polling started as usual, but one person was missed by many – Manohar Parrikar.

Parrikar has been a regular voter at this booth and always stood in a queue to vote, even when he was union Defence Minister.

The former chief minister expired on March 17 due to which the current elections are held.

Entire focus during first few hours was at this booth as Parrikar was one of the early voters. He stood in a line and always obliged for photographs with his signature style.

It was the usual practice that after voting, he used to walk out to give video bytes to mediapersons and then have his breakfast at Café Bhosle.

Incidently, Goa Suraksha Manch candidate Subhash Velingkar also votes in the same building, though his booth is separate from Parrikar.

Even at the height of political rivalry between Velingkar and Parrikar, the chemistry between both of them was that of comfort.
