IANS | Panaji |

While the nation continues to speculate over what Prime Minister Narendra Modi would say in his New Year's Eve speech, Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar on Friday dropped a broad hint about what would be on the premier's mind when he addresses the nation on Saturday night.

Asked what would Modi be speaking about in his New Year's Eve address, Parrikar said: "If I tell you, what message will he give, then the issue of PM giving a message. But it is believed that one of the key points will be about demonetisation."

Parrikar was speaking to reporters in Panaji after inaugurating the Bharatiya Janata Party's state election office.

Elections to the Goa legislative assembly are due to be held early next year.
