New Delhi, March 18, 2017: The Congress on Friday said Goa Governor Mridula Sinha has “admitted” that she consulted Finance Minister Arun Jaitley during government formation in the state and demanded her dismissal by President Pranab Mukherjee.

In a statement here, senior Congress leader Partap Singh Bajwa alleged that the Governor’s actions were politically motivated and the Bharatiya Janata Party had “manufactured its majority” in the coastal state.

“In an audacious revelation, the Governor has shockingly accepted that she consulted Union Minister Arun Jaitley to invite the BJP for government formation. This proves that the BJP manufactured the Goa majority while the Governor acted in cahoots with the central leadership in Delhi,” he said.

Bajwa said the Supreme Court had time and again reiterated that it was the Governor’s duty to “act judiciously” while exercising their power at the time of appointing the Chief Minister.

The Congress leader said that in her interviews, Sinha had said she “heard they (Congress) could not elect their legislature party leader, nor get enough support”.

“We want to ask the Governor, where did she hear it from? Did she hear it from anybody in the Congress? How can she take such a decision without consulting the President of India?” he said.

He alleged that the Governor indulged in “massive constitutional impropriety” and “unpardonable dereliction of duty” by speaking to Jaitley.

Bajwa also demanded Prime Minister Narendra Modi take action against Jaitley.

“We urge the President of India to exercise his powers under Article 156 (1) and immediately dismiss the Governor of Goa for abdicating her Constitutional responsibilities and oath of secrecy,” Bajwa said.
