Does the name make any difference to the common people. We simply make mountain out of a molehill. It is obvious that the ruling party will select as per their choice regardless, what we propose.

DEFFINITELY NOT. I think there were better chief Ministers of Goa than Mr.Parikar. It's upto the people of Goa not Modi or anyone else to decide. You may want to suggest a few names and see who the people elect to be names after this Airport. I think Jack Sequeira or Dayanand Bandolkar may be one of the choices more to Jack Sequeira because he is the mastermind to keep Goa as a State and not merge with Maharasthra. Do you agree?
