He said that the Governor should follow the precedent set by Karnataka counterpart and invite the single largest party to form the government correcting her mistake which she did on March 12, 2017 after State Legislative assembly results.
“We have 16 legislators with us and with that strength we are the single largest party in the Assembly. Governor should invite us to form the government in Goa as per the precedent set by her Karnataka counterpart,” Kavlekar said.
The 40 seat Goa legislative assembly has 16 Congress, 14 BJP, Three each from Goa Forward party, MGP and Independents and one from NCP legislators.
BJP has formed the government in alliance with GFP, MGP and Independents in March last year inducting Manohar Parrikar as the chief minister. Parrikar is currently being treated in the USA for his pancreatic ailment.
