BJP dismisses Goa Congress demand to dismiss Sawant govt

The ruling Bharatiya Janata Party on Wednesday ignored the accusations levelled in Congress’ memorandum to Goa Governor P.S. Sreedharan Pillai, in which the Opposition has sought dismissal of the coalition govt led by Pramod Sawant, citing a breakdown in the law and order machinery.

Speaking to reporters state BJP president Sadanand Shet Tanavade said that there was “nothing wrong” with the opposition making such claims before a Governor. “It is their job. They have to show their existence. Nothing wrong in that,” Tanavde said.

On Tuesday, Senior Congress leaders including state party president Girish Chodankar and Leader of Opposition Digambar Kamat met Pillai and submitted a memorandum for dismissal of the BJP-led coalition government in the state. “This government has no moral right to remain in power. The Governor of Goa should take serious note of the collapse of the law and order situation in the state and dismiss the BJP Government right way,” Kamat told reporters after meeting the Governor late on Tuesday. The four-page memorandum detailed a series of crimes against women and shoddy police investigations as one of the important grounds for the dismissal of the state government.
