Porvorim:  Speaker of Goa Legislative Assembly Rajesh Patnekar on Friday reserved the verdict on  the disqualification petitions filed against 12 MLAs who had switched from their respective parties to BJP.

Two different petitions are filed before the Speaker by Congress’ Goa President Girish Chodankar and MGP leader Sudin Dhavalikar respectively.

While Congress has challenged entry of their 10 MLAs in the BJP while MGP has filed petition on the similar lines against two of its former MLAs who had joined Amit Shah led party in Goa.

Advocate Abhijit Gosawi representing Chodankar told reporters on Friday evening that the Speaker had extensive hearing on the matter during the day in which the petitioners put up their case.

He said that the Speaker has reserved the verdict after hearing the arguments from both the sides.

Chodankar and Dhavalikar had filed disqualification petition in August 2019 against the MLAs after they deserted their respective parties to join Pramod Sawant-led government.

The last hearing on the petition was held by the Speaker in February 2020 after which no dates were given for the petitioners.

Irked with the delay, Chodankar had filed petition in the Supreme Court questioning the delay on the part of the Speaker.
