​Goa Pradesh Congress Committee along with the Congress Legislative Party on Monday asked Governor of Goa Dr Mridula Sinha to quash and set aside all decisions, except those adopted on humanitarian grounds, taken by the State government since the conclusion of the last session of Goa Legislative Assembly.  

A delegation of GPCC and CLP comprising GPCC president Shantaram Naik, Leader of Opposition Chandrakant “Babu” Kavlekar, former Chief Minister and Margao MLA Digambar Kamat, Curtorim MLA Aleixo Reginaldo Lourenco, Tivim MLA Nilkant Halarnkar, Taleigao MLA Jennifer Monserrate, Mahila Congress president Pratima Coutinho, Seva Dal chief Shankar Killaparkar, North Goa Congress president president Vijai Bhike and Joe Dias paid a visit to the Raj Bhavan and submitted the joint memorandum to Sinha​.  

Speaking to the press, GPCC president Naik stated, “Congress has made four prayers in the memorandum. Firstly, all decisions taken by the government after the adjournment of the House be quashed and set aside except those which have been taken on humanitarian grounds; secondly, convening of a session of Assembly at the earliest; thirdly, a white paper with respect to decisions of the government from the date of adjournment of the House and lastly, that the government should ensure issuance of a regular health bulletin about the health of the CM.”  

Naik questioned the legitimacy enjoyed by the three-member advisory committee appointed by the CM and termed the temporary set-up as “unconstitutional”.  

“A Chief Minister is appointed by the governor to advise her in administration. Who ​​has authorized the three-member committee to advise the governor?
