Panaji: Hours after the three-day-long Goa Legislative Assembly session culminated, Chief Minister Pramod Sawant claimed that the two opposition MLAs were involved in a “rowdy conduct” on the floor of the House.
Sawant was apparently referring to the group of opposition MLAs rushing into the Well of the House on Friday, after State government hurriedly passed bunch of the Bills.
“Today, several pro-people bills were passed in the Assembly. Given the increasing popularity of various schemes and policies implemented by our Government, the opposition is frustrated,” ,” the chief minister tweeted, posting the video of opposition MLAs throwing off the hats of Assembly Marshals and also a book towards Speaker Rajesh Patnekar.
“From lack of winnable candidates to failed alliance talks, they resorted to violence right inside the temple of democracy. This rowdy conduct by @VijaiSardesai and @RohanKhaunte is unbecoming of a public representative. I must remind them, people of Goa are watching,” he said in another tweet.
Reacting to the tweet, Sardesai tweeted “Advising @DrPramodPSawant to check history of @BJP4India and opinion of its 2 top leaders @arunjaitley & @SushmaSwaraj as regards to obstructionism and disruption of parliament before casting aspersions on others. Anyway, it is the government’s job to run the House not that of the opposition.”
