Panaji: Congress party on Friday demanded that Goa Chief Minister Pramod Sawant should sack his cabinet minister Milind Naik over his alleged involvement in allowing Pakistan-based unmanned ship in Mormugao Port Trust (MPT).

Goa Pradesh Congress Committee Vice President Sankulp Amonkar speaking on Prime Encounter on Prime Media channel said that the party has already demanded with the chief minister that high-level inquiry should be conducted into the entire episode surround permission granted to Pakistan based ship ‘Nu Shi Nalini’ carrying Naphtha.

The ship, which was anchored at Mormugao Port Trust, had drifted towards the coast in November.

“The investigation should be conducted by National Investigation Agency (NIA) or Defence Investigation Agency (DIA),” Amonkar said.

He added that till the inquiry is completed, Naik should be sacked from the cabinet by Sawant or he should step down on moral ground.

Congress delegation led by Leader of Opposition Digambar Kamat had met Sawant on Tuesday demanding high-level inquiry.

The opposition party had urged the state government that Director General of Shipping should not be allowed to conduct the investigation as the suspicion is also on their officials.

The unmanned ship had drifted from MPT on October 24 and had ran aground off-Goa coast.

When contacted,  Milind Naik said that he was in the meeting and can’t  respond.
