Panaji: Goa Pradesh Congress Committee Working President Yuri Alemao has welcomed the order of the High Court directing State government to hold the panchayat elections within 45 days an to issue the notification within three days.
“We welcome the order of the High Court directing the Government to hold the Panchayat Elections within 45 days and to issue the notification within 3 days,” Alemao said.
“It is indeed a sorry state of affairs that citizens have to knock the doors of the Court to uphold Democracy. Holding timely elections is the duty of the Government and the Goa State Election Commission.”
“The order of the High Court once again highlights the failure of the Government and more so of the statutory bodies like the SEC which are expected to function independently and guard the statutory and constitutional mandate.”
