Rane Issues Notices to Churchill, Reginaldo

Speaker Pratapsing Rane has issued notices to PWD Minister Churchill Alemao and MLA Aleixo Reginaldo Lourenco asking both to be present on 30th June at 11:30 am in his chamber for a hearing on the disqualification petition pending against them.

Churchill’s bête noire and Nationalist Congress Party MLA Micky Pacheco had filed a disqualification petition against the duo in October 2008 on grounds that they attracted disqualification since they were elected to the Goa Legislative Assembly on the Save Goa Front ticket and subsequently joined the Congress.
However, the petition was placed on a back burner till Micky sought to revive it last month by bringing to the notice of the Speaker that the Election Commission of India had recognized Save Goa Front as a regional party with “aeroplane” as its symbol.
Churchill and Reginaldo had replied that the Save Goa Front had merged with the Congress Party and therefore the petition filed by Micky was not maintainable.
