K’taka effect: Congress begins Goa tour to put pressure on Governor Mridula Sinha

Mridula Sinha

Panaji, May 22: The Congress on Tuesday launched a tour across Goa to highlight the BJP-led dispensation’s “failures” and put pressure on Governor Mridula Sinha to invite the opposition party to form a government in the coastal state.

Seeking adoption of the Karnataka example in Goa, the Congress last week decided to stake claim to form government in the coastal state where it had emerged as the single largest party in the Assembly polls held last year.

The party plans to carry out a statewide tour and continue the agitation till the governor does not dismiss the current Manohar Parrikar government, All India Congress Committee secretary Dr A Chellakumar said.

The Congress leaders started the tour, titled ‘Jana Gana Mana, Nomon Tuka Goemkara’ (Jana Gana Mana, we salute the Goans), from Panaji and they would travel to all the 40 Assembly constituencies in the state, he asserted.

It will conclude with a “mega-morcha” outside the state secretariat, the Congress leader said, but did not specify for how long the tour will continue.

“Our agitation will continue till the governor does not dismiss this inefficient government which has put the state’s people to hardship. The governor should invite the Congress to form the government, as it has the maximum number of legislators among all parties in the House,” he added.

Rajya Sabha VP Naidu

New Delhi, Sep 20 : Soon after an unprecedented ruckus broke out in the Rajya Sabha with some House members squatting in the premises that forced the Lok Sabha to be delayed, a high-level meeting was convened at the residence of Rajya Sabha Chairman Venkaiah Naidu.

The meeting at the Rajya Sabha Chairman’s house was believed to be over the ruckus created by MPs of certain opposition parties in the upper house earlier on Sunday where some members like TMC’s Derek O’Brien went aggressive and tore up documents. The intimidation of the Chair was not taken lightly by the Chairman, say sources.

The meeting was attended by Deputy Chairman Harivansh Narain Singh, Parliamentary Affairs Minister Pralhad Joshi and Union Railway Minister Piyush Goyal.

Meanwhile, further complicating the matter, the Congress party moved a no-confidence motion against Rajya Sabha Deputy Chairman Harivansh Narain Singh for not entertaining opposition’s demand of a division of votes on the passage of the two agri Bills.

Congress leader Ahmed Patel while speaking to the media said, “Our demands for division were not met and the conduct of the Deputy Chairman was not according to democratic norms.” However, it is uncertain whether it came up during the high-level meet.

New Delhi, Sep 20 : The Congress has alleged that the conduct of Rajya Sabha Deputy Chairman Harivansh Narain Singh was “undemocratic” and the party will bring a no-confidence motion on the issue.

Congress leader Ahmed Patel while speaking to the media said, “Our demands for division were not met and the conduct of the Deputy Chairman was not according to democratic norms.”

“This is a black day as it is against farmers and the state government and favours corporate,” added Patel.

Congress leader Partap Singh Banda termed the agri Bills as “death warrants” for farmers.

After the passing of agri Bills, opposition members alleging bias sat in the House and later protested at the Parliament premises.

The opposition alleged that after the house’s time was over the Chair did not take consent of the house and demands of taking the Bills on Monday was denied as the chair went for a voice vote and demand for the division of votes was not allowed.

Earlier, the Rajya Sabha saw a massive ruckus on Sunday as the government sought to clear the farm Bills amid an unrelenting opposition determined to block them as TMC MP Derek O’Brien tore up the documents.
