New Delhi, Nov 17 (IECurrentAffairs) The Congress today demanded that a special session of the Goa Assembly be immediately convened asking the Government to prove its majority and lay down a roadmap for Governance and Administration as also for settlement of issues of Regional Plan, Mining, PRZ, Unemployment .
In a joint statement, AICC media incharge Randeep Surjewala, Goa PCC chief Girish Chodankar and CLP leader Chandrakant (Babu) Kavlekar alleged that the governance in the state had collapsed due to the falling health of Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar.
“Sheer greed for power by BJP’s shenanigans has plunged the state into a deep dingy abyss- where after Democracy; Governance has also become the final casualty. On account of incapacity of the Chief Minister owing to illness, ‘power brokers’ are running amok plundering the state’s resources and holding Democracy to ransom.”
Goa is suffering from a complete breakdown of Constitutional Machinery,’’the statement said.
Pointing out that BJP president, Vinay Tendulkar himself accepted that BJP Government has lost majority, the statement said,’’BJP president, Amit Shah ruled out a change of guard in Goa on September 23, thus betraying and backstabbing the people of Goa.’’
‘’Constitutional morality is the first casualty in the scheme of things run by Prime Minister Narendra Modi and BJP President Amit Shah. On behalf of Goans, we demand that a special session of the Goa Assembly should be immediately convened asking the BJP Government to prove its majority and lay down a roadmap for Governance and Administration as also for settlement of issues of Regional Plan, Mining, PRZ, Unemployment etc. This will clear all doubts about who is in-charge in Goa and the floor test will determine as to which party has the rightful claim to head a democratic Government in people’s interest.’’
