Panaji: The opposition benches in Goa Legislative Assembly have written to the Governor B S Koshyari and State Election Commission seeking to curtail the days of upcoming Budget Session due to the ongoing Code of Conduct.

MGP leader Sudin Dhavalikar told reporters on Thursday that the State government has indulged into impropriety by calling for a longer session of the Assembly when code of conduct is on in the state.

Six municipal councils and Corporation of City of Panaji will go for polling on March 20, while dates for the election of five municipal councils are yet to be announced.

The Budget session will begin on March 24 and will culminate on April 16.Chief Minister Pramod Sawant is scheduled to present the Budget on the first day of the Session. This would be his second Budget after taking over the reigns of the state after the demise of Manohar Parrikar.

The opposition leaders including Leader of Opposition Digambar Kamat, Goa Forward Party President Vijai Sardesai and MGP leader Sudin Dhavalikar had expressed concern during the Business Advisory Committee meeting held on Wednesday.

Dhavalikar said that the united opposition has written a letter to the State Election Commission and also to the Governor. “If we don’t get a reply to our letter by today (Thursday), we will seek an appointment with the Governor,” he added.

He said that the Chief Minister should adjourn the Session after presenting the Budget and hold the Assembly after Code of Conduct is over.
