Rahul Gandhi would address the special midnight session of state assembly on the occasion of Golden Jubilee of Goa`s liberation from Portuguese rule.

Goa Congress president Subhash Shirodkar said, "It is for
the members of Legislative Assembly and the Chief Minister to
decide who should be invited".

"We are a democracy and suggestions can be given by
anyone... It was a casual statement," he said, referring to
statement by Jagmeet Singh Brar.

Brar, all India Congress Committee observer, had told
reporters here last month that Congress general secretary
Rahul Gandhi would be invited to address the midnight session.

The proposal to invite Rahul was immediately condemned by
the main opposition BJP.
