Mumbai, March 20: Criticizing the newly elect coalition government of Bharatiya Janata party (BJP) in Goa, Shiv Sena on Monday said that the government in Goa is a temporary alliance of corrupts.
Shiv Sena leader Sanjay Raut told ANI that Goa has a temporary government.
“Goa has a temporary government. It’s a corrupt alliance. The BJP here had been completely rejected by people during polls,” said Raut.
On Thursday, former Defence Minister and newly-appointed Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar had won floor test in the Goa Assembly as 22 MLAs stood in his support.
16 MLAs opposed Parrikar’s candidature as the Chief Minister, while one MLA was absent. This was despite the BJP being the runner up of the assembly polls result with 13 MLAs.
The largest party in the state Congress (with 17 MLAs) had challenged the appointment of Parrikar, citing Goa Governor Mridula Sinha did not follow the procedure as dictated by the Constitution.
Earlier too, Shiv Sena criticised BJP for stealing the people’s mandate in Goa and Manipur and killing democracy in its mouth piece newspaper Samana.
