Current Affairs

Congress stands behind Goa CM

Even though many questions have been raised about the direct and indirect involvement of the Goa Chief Minister Digambar Kamat in the illegal mining scam in the state; has learnt through highly placed sources in the All India Congress Committee that the President and core-team of the high command plan to continue with Kamat as the chief minister since the PAC report has been discredited and Shah Commission report has not yet been made public.

However this reprieve seems to be a stop-gap arrangement and a final decision will only be taken after Justice M B Shah Commission report if it implicated Kamat in the illegal mining; that too again would depend on whether there is conclusive evidence to prove that he is directly involved or gained through illegal mining.

Sources also say that opposition party at the state – BJP, revolt against the Congress-led government on illegal mining has tapered down and while pro-mining agitation led by mining companies have come-out in large numbers to demand no ban on mining; BJP leaders have decided to do small dharnas in constituencies to inform voters against illegal mining; offering very little resistance to the Congress-led government on the illegal mining issue. In fact BJP Goa even contradicted its high command decision to ask for the resignation of the Chief Minister.
