PANJIM: The BJP-led coalition government’s Common Minimum Programme (CMP) for the State will be released on June 18, Goa Revolution Day, as the election code of conduct due to the panchayat polls, bars any such announcements.

Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar on Tuesday said, “We have kept the announcement on common minimum programme on hold due to code of conduct which is in operation due to the panchayat elections. We will now release it on June 18.”

“CMP is a government programme and hence cannot be released during the code of conduct, it can have an impact on the election,” the Chief Minister said explaining the reason why it could not be released on May 30, Statehood Day, as assured earlier.

The panchayat elections are scheduled to take place on June 11 and the code of conduct will continue till June 13, when votes are counted.

Goa Forward Party leader and Town and Country Planning Minister Vijai Sardesai took to Twitter to announce the postponement of date for unveiling the CMP. “Announcement of #Common Minimum Programme (#CMP) of alliance #Goa Govt postponed to 18th June - Goa Revolution Day as Model Code of Conduct in force,” Sardesai tweeted Tuesday morning. 

The coalition partners – BJP, Goa Forward, MGP and Independents – have held one meeting so far to chalk out the CMP. The next meeting is scheduled after the panchayat polls. 

At the first meeting it had been resolved to focus on providing a ‘sensitive’ and ‘responsible’ government. The CMP will lay emphasis on ‘sab ka sath sab ka vikas with Goenkarpon’.

The coalition partners have unanimously agreed to withdraw the amendment to the controversial Tree Preservation Act that declassified coconut as ‘tree’ and to give coconut a State Tree status, to extract the amendment to Goa Agriculture Tenancy Act and to review the rules and regulations of the Investment Promotion Board (IPB) and so also the permissions granted by it over last two years.
