Goa Congress's challenge to BJP, prove majority in assembly

Panaji,19,September,2018

 

Panaji: Congress MLAs in Goa met Governor Mridula Sinha on Tuesday and asked them to direct the BJP government to prove majority in the assembly. This step has been taken at a time when 62-year-old Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar is admitted to AIIMS in Delhi for treatment of pancreatic diseases.

 

 

 

Congress legislators led by opposition leader Chandrakant Kawalkar demanded that the governor should prove the majority by convening the one-day session of the Assembly. After meeting with Sinha, Kawlakar said, "The state government should prove in the house that he has a majority, otherwise we will show that we have more MLAs than him."

 

 

 

The Congress has 16 MLAs in the 40-member House of Goa. With the support of the Goa Forward Party (GFP), Maharashtrawadi Gomantak Party (MGP), NCP and independents, BJP is running the state government. In the Legislative Assembly, there are 14 members of the BJP, three members of the GFP and MGP and one member of the NCP. Three independents are MLAs.
