Goa Forward Party (GFP) on Sunday objected to state government’s decision to hold upcoming Assembly Session only for three days.
In a statement, GFP President Vijay Sardesai said,”On June 23rd 2021 Chief Minister Pramod Sawant announced that Government has decided to hold Assembly session from 28th July. We also have learnt from very reliable sources that it will be for three days only. We strongly object to this totally undemocratic attitude of the government.”
Stating that the assembly was a platform for legislators to voice their constituents’ views and opinions about matters that concern the wellbeing of the state and the people, he said government’s plan to curtail the session to three days was a diabolical plan to use the assembly to pass a budget so that the BJP got a carte blanche to go ahead with all its anti-Goem and anti-Goemkar plans and to also ensure that the voice of the Goemkar was not heard.
”We demand that all the pending LAQs from the last session should be answered by the Government, in fact, the entire business planned for that session should be completed as promised at the time of adjourning the House, the budget cannot be passed so peremptorily, just because of their manufactured brute majority in the house,” he said.
