Panaji: Goa Congress on Friday appealed Goa Governor Satya Pal Malik to intervene after two ministers in Pramod Sawant-led government traded charges of corruption against each other.

Goa Pradesh Congress Committee President Girish Chodankar said that the Governor should seek explanation from the Chief Minister about the statements made by Deputy Chief Minister Manohar Ajgaonkar and Minister Michel Lobo trading charges in public, acknowledging that there is gross corruption in the State of Goa.

Both the ministers had verbal clash in media after Lobo charged Ajgaonkar for shielding illegalities, while the latter claiming that all the 40 MLAs in Goa Assembly were corrupt.

Chodankar said the Governor should send the relevant videos and media reports to the President of India and should exercise his Constitutional powers and dismiss the State Government.

“The Congress Party had time and again brought to the notice of the Chief Minister various cases of gross corruptions by Ajgaonkar and other Ministers in the Cabinet including Chief Minister,” he said.

“It may be noted that the Governor is the Constitutional head of the State and the administration is run by the Chief Minister and his Cabinet. The utterances of both the Cabinet Ministers have brought disrepute to the Constitutional position of the Governor. The Governor should take serious note of this act of the Ministers,” Chodankar said.
