Goa CM refrains from speaking on PAC's illegal mining report

Panaji: Goa Chief Minister Digambar Kamat on Monday refused to get embroiled in the controversy surrounding the Public Accounts Committee (PAC) report on illegal mining in the state.
 
"It's between the Speaker and the Legislative Assembly. I have no powers to speak on the  matter," Kamat said, when asked about the suspicion surrounding the authenticity of the PAC report.
 
The Chief Minister refused to entertain questions related to the PAC stating that he would not like to comment on the issue.
 
Congress party had expressed doubts over the authenticity of the PAC report, claiming that their members were not invited for the meetings.
 
However, Congress legislators on the Committee admitted that they were often absent for  the meetings.
 
Congress legislator Fransisco Silveira admitted he had not attended a single PAC meeting, despite invitations being received on time.
 
Another legislator Agnelo Fernandes said he had attended just two out of 20 meetings.
