MGP reiterates demand for handing of power, threatens of further action


Panaji: Maharashtrawadi Gomantak Party (MGP) has reiterated their demand that Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar should hand over his charge to any senior minister till he is fit to occupy the chair.

MGP President Dipak Dhavalikar said that the people have been complaining about collapsed administration due to absence of the Chief Minister in office.

“Since he is recuperating at home, he should hand over the charge to any senior minister till he is fit to occupy the chair,” he said.

MGP is an ally in Manohar Parrikar-led government.

Dhavalikar said that the patience of the people have been running out and they want some solution for the crisis. “Every day, we have to pacify people who come to our door step complaining about collapse of the administration,” he said.

The MGP  President said that they will have to take “further decision” if charge is not handed over to any senior minister by Parrikar within a month.

“Party’s Central Committee will meet and discuss the situation before taking any further decision. We will wait for a month for the Chief Minister to hand over the charge,” he said.

Dhavalikar also said that the party is contemplating to move to Goa Bench of Bombay High Court against frequent mid-term switch over by MLAs from one party to another.

“We will plead that the law should be enacted wherein it should be illegal for any MLA to switch over to any other party mid-term. The frequent by-elections are straining government resources, which is the money of tax payers,” he said.
