CLP to meet Goa Governor to stake claim for govt formation

Goa assembly elections

"We are holding a Congress Legislative Party meeting in the morning and then will be meeting the Governor at 10.00 am to stake claim to form the next government".

Earlier, in a dramatic development, the Congress had moved the apex court against Governor Sinha's decision, despite the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) emerging as the second largest party. But surely this is not about running the race to the Raj Bhawan faster - speed can not be the overriding or pressing consideration for the governor while assessing a party's claim to form government. The Sarkaria Commission, which studied Centre-state relations in the 1980s, held a similar view.

Governor Najma Heptullah invited the BJP to form a government in Manipur under N. Biren Singh, with the swearing in scheduled for March 15 afternoon. While they chose to shoot from others' shoulders they could not even deliver what was asked by the party.

Allies outnumber the BJP in Manohar Parrikar's council of ministers in Goa.

The court took on record the CLP leader's communication to the Governor on March 12, 2017 staking claim, but noted that it was shown to be served only the next day after the Governor had issued an order appointing Parrikar as the Chief Minister.

On 9 December, the Congress government in Manipur created seven new districts by splitting the existing nine districts, taking the total to 16. "As the entire country is replete with the wave of BJP and PM Modi, Karnataka is no exception and polls are due any time in Karnataka to root out the corrupt Congress government", Yeddyurappa stated. Biren and one or two elected members may take oath.

Oil prices recover marginally after plummeting to three-month low
Traders should use the current fall in crude to accumulate long position in oil if prices rebound from the trendline. Subdued refinery activity as operators perform seasonal maintenance in the USA could also put a lid on any rallies.

However, that hope is fading away as all other members of the non-Congress parties and the lone Independent MLA have extended support to the BJP.

Manohar Parrikar had also addressed a press conference and announced that he had met the governor and said, "This is a mandate given by the people, though we fell short of majority.Together we have completed the magic figure of 21".

Ibobi Singh had pinned his hope on the NPP, which has four MLAs. "But we have an ideological fight with the BJP and we will continue to do that", said the Congress Vice-President.

Congress spokesperson Abhishek Manu Singvi said: "Unfortunately the BJP is now becoming an expert in creating governments through Governors whereas government creation is the work of the people who vote". They appeared before the governor in person and submitted a letter of support. In fact, Goa Forward Party ran an anti-BJP campaign.
