Parrikar Will Be Sworn In Today As Supreme Court Refuses Congress Party’s Appeal For A Stay

Published on 14 March, 2017 at 3:00 pm By

Manohar Parrikar will be taking oath as the Chief Minister of Goa today in the evening. The Supreme Court refused to stay his oath-taking but ordered that a floor test should be held this Thursday, March 16.

The Congress party, which won the maximum number of seats in the Goa elections, had challenged Goa Governor Mridula Sinha’s decision to let BJP form the government in the state.

BJP had gathered the required number of seats to form a government with allies.

While the Congress won 17 seats, the BJP won 13. However, the other parties allied with the BJP.

Three independents and three members each of the Goa Forward Party (GFP) and the Maharashtravadi Gomantak Party (MGP) decided to join the BJP in forming a government on the condition that Manohar Parrikar be made the Chief Minister.

That brought the total number of MLAs in BJP’s side to 22 in the 40-member Goa assembly.

 




On Saturday, Manohar Parrikar decided to leave the post of Defence Minister and become the CM of Goa.

A special bench headed by Chief Justice J.S. Khehar said: “You (Congress) don’t have the numbers and that’s why you didn’t claim to form government… You haven’t demonstrated before the governor that number is in your favor.”

Despite that Congress claimed that the ruling was in its favour.

 

Congress leaders arrived in Goa with their MLAs to talk to the Governor.
