Congress Stakes Claim to Form Government in Goa

Congress Stakes Claim to Form Government in Goa

New Delhi: The Congress today staked claim to form the government in Goa following the death of Manohar Parrikar.

The grand old party wrote a letter  to Governor Mridula Sinha claiming that since the coalition government in Goa had been formed on the condition that Parrikar would be the CM, his death has left the BJP with no allies.

"We deeply mourn the sad demise of Shri Manohar Parrikar, Chief Minister of Goa. This unfortunate development calls for the immediate action on your part for the smooth transition and transfer of power," mentions the letter.

The Congress said, "The coalition partners of the Parrikar-led government had allied with BJP on condition that the government is headed by Mr Manohar Parrikar, the then Defence Minister of India. The  BJP, therefore, has no allies as of now."

The Congress also said that since it is the single-largest party, it should be invited to form the next government.
