Shripad Naik, who won the North Goa Lok Sabha seat defeating his nearest Congress rival Girish Chodankar by 80,247 votes, had also served as a Union Minister of State in the Atal Bihari Vajpayee-led NDA government.
Shripad Naik, a five-term MP, has never been appointed a full fledged cabinet minister.
In the previous Modi regime, Shripad Naik served first as Union minister of state for Tourism.
