CONG CLAIMS MAJORITY IN GOA, WANTS PARRIKAR TO QUIT
NEW DELHI: Accusing the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) of acting “power hungry” in Goa, the Congress on Saturday demanded that chief minister Manohar Parrikar step down and it be allowed to prove majority by convening a special session of the state assembly. Congress leaders Pawan Khera and Goa unit chief Girish Chodankar claimed that the BJP is not removing Parrikar from the chief minister’s post fearing that he might “spill the beans” on the Rafale fighter jet deal. “Power hungry BJP first murdered democracy in Goa and is now killing governance there. The clamour for power has cemented a corrupt, callous and cheat BJP to the CM Chair in Goa,” said Khera.
