"The aim is to provide on-the-spot solutions for the problems faced by the people in those constituencies. Parrikar would be accompanied by government officers and legislators from the respective constituencies," Goa BJP president Vinay Tendulkar told PTI.

The chief minister would be meeting the public and the party cadres to understand their issues in their respective
constituencies, he said.
