Panaji: The Congress today asked Goa Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar not to take law in his hands while initiating legal action against its former ministers for their alleged involvement in various scams.
"We are warning BJP-led government to not take law in your hand and call Congress legislators corrupt. Let the law of the land and court of the country prove that they are corrupt," said a resolution moved at the Congress Legislature Party meeting.
Congress legislators met today, a day after BJP state executive resolved to take action against its leaders including former chief minister Digambar Kamat and ministers Churchill Alemao and Atanasio Monserratte and legislator Chandrakant Kavlekar.
"Parrikar has tried enough to nail Congress leaders by filing cases against them in Lokayukta and Vigilance department. The resolution adopted by the chief minister (to take action against ex-Congress ministers) was to fool people and the party (BJP) cadres.
"BJP is adopting such resolutions to hide their misrule of 16 months, where they have failed on every front," CLP spokesman Aleixo Reginaldo Lourenco told reporters after the meeting.
He alleged that BJP reneged on various promises it had made in the election manifesto of 2012 Assembly elections, including removal of off-shore casino vessels from Mandovi river, scrapping of Regional Plan and recovery of money looted in the mining scam.
