Parrikar may dissolve assembly: Goa Congress to Guv

Goa Congress leader Girish R. Chodankar on Wednesday wrote a letter to Governor Mridula Sinha expressing fear that Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar government may recommend dissolution of the Assembly.

Claiming that Parrikar government is struggling with its allies and intra-party politics within the coalition, Chodankar cautioned the governor of a possible dissolution.

"Manohar Parrikar government is in minority and is struggling with its allies and intra-party politics within the coalition. As a result, the administration has completely collapsed. There is 'state of emergency' due to Parrikar not stepping down and providing a viable alternative," the letter read.

Chodankar also said that the Assembly should not be dissolved before its term is over.

The letter also claims that majority MLAs of the existing Assembly are not in support of a fresh election, including those sitting on the ruling benches. It further states that Congress party with all its strength and democratic tools at its disposal will oppose the dissolution of the Assembly.
