Panaji: The Congress party is likely to approach President of India seeking his intervention in directing the BJP led coalition government to appoint a full-time Chief Minister for Goa.
Congress Legislative Party (CLP) chaired by Chandrakant Kavlekar today held discussion on the current state of affairs in absence of Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar, who is in USA for medical treatment since March.
Speaking to reporters post meeting, Chodankar, who was special invitee for the CLP, said party is exploring possibility of approaching President of India over the ongoing constitutional crisis in the State. “We will seek intervention of President of India in getting a full time Chief minister for the State,” he stated.
“We are also exploring idea of moving High Court seeking intervention of the judiciary in the matter,” he added.
Chodankar said that the State is going through serious constitutional crisis as it is headless for more than 100 days now. “The opposition and the people are demanded for a full-time Chief Minister for the State. It is been more than 100 days that State is functioning without a Chief Minister,” he added.
