Panaji: Goa’s acting State Assembly Speaker Michael Lobo on Thursday reserved its order on a disqualification petition filed against Health Minister and BJP MLA Vishwajit Rane to May 22.

Lobo had issued notice to Rane and petitioner, Independent MLA Prasad Gaonkar to appear before him today.

“I have heard both the parties and the order is reserved for May 22,” Lobo said.

The Independent MLA had filed the disqualification petition before the then Speaker Pramod Sawant against Rane in August 2017, seeking his disqualification from the House.

Rane had resigned as a member of the State Legislative Assembly soon after getting elected on congress party ticket in March 2017 polls and then joined BJP.

Rane had resigned minutes after taking oath and later had quit Congress party. He was inducted into State cabinet in May 2017, even before winning the by-election from the Valpoi assembly constituency in August 2017.
