Panaji: Goa Pradesh Congress Committee President Girish Chodankar has demanded that BJP Minister Mauvin Godinho should immediately step down from the cabinet to ensure impartial investigation into the death of Merces panch Prakash Naik.

Chodankar said that Wilson Godinho, an elder brother of the minister, has been named in the WhatsApp message that was sent by Naik seconds before his death.

Congress refused to comment on this unfortunate incident, but now that the Family members expressing their doubts about the Death.

“Congress was waiting and watching the investigation by Goa Police. But as the time passed, Wilson Godinho’s name has been getting prominently figured in the case. Even the family members of Naik has named him while addressing a press conference on Saturday,” he said.

“We demand that Mauvin , should immediately step down from the State cabinet or Chief Minister Pramod Sawant should sack him to make sure that the investigation in the case is impartial and the one who is found involved in the act be punished,” Chodankar said.

Chodankar said “it is obvious that there would be a political pressure on the investigating officer as Godinho is a senior member in the cabinet, who works like HMV (His Master’s Voice) on several issues.

The minister, who pretended to believe in Congress ideology till some days back, has got himself completely saffronised to get out of corruption charges leveled against him in the past by same party, which later had become ‘Attempt to Corruption’

Naik’s death has sent shockwaves amongst the people, especially his family members and friends. “His family members are not able to believe that the person with such mighty guts and willpower would end his life in this fashion,” he said.

The death also indicates how the land mafia has been operating in the state under BJP-led government’s rule.

“Detailed investigation into this incident can help police to dig into a larger conspiracy. But for that, the police should be provided with free hand,” he said.

The Congress party demands that Godinho should step down with immediate effect as wasting any more time on this case can lead to destruction of evidences.
