The Committee has be given the mandate to also probe into the allegations of drug trafficking involving former Home Minister’s son Roy Naik. And consists of other MLAs Michael Lobo, Lavoo Mamledar, Caetano Silva and Vishnu Wagh. However, it does not consist of anyone from the Opposition.
When Dabolim MLA Mauvin Godinho questioned the Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar on this issue. The CM brushed the issue aside stating that inclusion of Opposition in the House Committee was not necessary.
