Goa's current Chief Minister Pramod Sawant is a Bhartiya Janata Party (BJP) supporter (BJP). He became the next chief minister after Manohar Parrikar's death on March 17, 2019. His official inauguration occurred on March 19.

Sawant was born on April 24, 1970, in the North Goa district hamlet of Sankhali. He attended Goa University and is now a Bachelor of Arts in Sanskrit graduate. Subsequently, he attended Mumbai University and graduated with a law degree.

Sawant first became involved in politics as a member of the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh's student organization, the Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP) (RSS). He eventually became involved with the BJP, rising through the ranks to General Secretary and then State Secretary in Goa.

From the Sankhali seat, Sawant was elected to the Goa Legislative Assembly in the 2012 elections. In the 2017 elections, he was again chosen to represent his district.

On March 12, 2018, Sawant was selected as the next Speaker of the Goa Legislative Assembly. Until he became the Chief Minister of Goa, he served in this role.

The Goan BJP-led coalition administration has been busy with several construction initiatives since he took office. Goa Medical College is being expanded, and a new airport is being built in Mopa, among other projects.

Sawant is also fighting the drug problem in Goa by taking action. The 'Goa Against Drugs' campaign, which he began in June 2019, seeks to educate the public about the perils of substance misuse and connect addicts with treatment and recovery resources.

The Goa administration led by the BJP has been lauded for its progressive initiatives. It has been criticized, though, for how it has handled the mining situation in the state. Goa's mining industry was effectively shut down in 2018 after a prohibition by the Supreme Court. To resume mining operations sustainably, the government has been working on a strategy.

Sawant is a leader who cares deeply about improving Goa. He has tackled the tough issues that have come up in his position as governor of Goa with a can-do attitude.

Countdown: 20. Mizoram's official language, Zoramthanga (MNF)
Mizoram is a state in northeastern India, and its current Chief Minister is Zoramthanga. He is active with the Mizo National Front, a local political organization. Previously, from 1998 to 2008, and again from 2018 to the current day, Zoramthanga has been Mizoram's Chief Minister. He was also one of the first members of the party.

Originally from the Mizoram town of Chalfilh, Zoramthanga entered the world on December 19, 1947. Lalthansanga and Lalhriatrenga are his parents. A graduate of Mission Veng High School and St. Edmund's College, Shillong was his educational destination. Following that, he attended the Delhi School of Economics and received a master's degree in economics.

When the Mizo people experienced a famine in 1959–60, Zoramthanga got his start in politics as a member of the Mizo National Famine Front, an aid group. Upon the formation of the Mizo National Front in 1961, he quickly became a member. In 1975, he was promoted to General Secretary of the party.

In April of 1977, Zoramthanga was taken into custody for his role in the Mizo National Front's military battle for independence from India. In 1986, he was granted parole.

Zoramthanga was elected to the Mizoram Legislative Assembly when the state of Mizoram became part of India in 1988. Starting in 1998, he led Mizoram as its Chief Minister. In 2018, he was re-elected as the head of government.
