Aims to expose government’s failures; Will question Speaker on why private members’ resolution on Dr Sequeira statue was disallowed

PANJIM: Ahead of the month-long Budget session of the State Legislative Assembly, the Congress Legislative Party (CLP) met on Friday to chalk out its floor management and strategy to corner and expose the BJP-led government on its failures and wrongdoings on the Floor of the House. 

The CLP, under the leadership of Chandrakant (Babu) Kavlekar resolved to question Speaker Dr Pramod Sawant on reasons why their private members’ resolution demanding the installation of a statue of Dr Jack Sequeira was disallowed. CLP members claimed that though there is no official communication from the Speaker’s officer, they have learnt from the media that the resolution has been set aside. 

Addressing media persons after the meeting, Kavlekar said, “We discussed which MLA will raise what question or which are the calling attentions, Zero Hour mentions and private member resolutions that need to be tabled. We have three more weeks to move private members’ resolutions,” he said. 

Kavlekar said that the MLAs will meet the Speaker after the Governor’s address seeking clarity on the private members’ resolution. “We have not been officially informed by the Speaker’s office that our private members’ resolution on the statue has been disallowed. But we have come to know from the media that all the private member resolutions on statues have been disallowed. We are going to meet Speaker and would like to know on what grounds it was rejected,” he said.

The meeting also decided to expose the BJP-led coalition government on the Floor of the House, pointing to its failures and wrongdoings in last year. Congress will corner the government on coal pollution, river nationalisation, Mhadei water diversion, ongoing mining crisis, unemployment, etc. 

“Government will be completing one year in March, when the Assembly will be in session. We will seek an explanation from the government on the status of the assurances it made in the last one year,” Kavlekar said.
