MGP withdraws support from Cong-led Govt in Goa
Panaji: Maharashtrawadi Gomantak Party today
withdrew support from the Congress-led coalition government in Goa, a move which comes less than a month ahead of the March 3
MGP President Deepak Dhavalikar said the decision has
been taken as per a resolution passed by the party`s highest
decision making body, Central Committee.
The party, the oldest regional outfit in the state, has
forwarded letters conveying its decision to Governor K
Sankaranarayanan, Assembly Speaker Pratapsinh Rane and Chief Minister Digambar Kamat, he said.
MGP has two MLAs in the 40-member Goa Assembly.
Dhavalikar said the party has finalised a pre-poll
alliance with main opposition BJP which will be formally
announced later in the day.
MGP`s lone Minister Ramakrishna Dhavalikar has already
resigned from the Digambar Kamat-led state Cabinet.
The party`s withdrawal of support, however, will not
affect the stability of the Congress-led government, which
still enjoys a majority in the House. Sharad Pawar-led NCP is
part of the ruling coalition.
