Will Independents take Centre stage this Assembly Session?

With the government gearing up for the Monsoon Assembly Session in July, many will be looking forward to the Opposition Party – Congress to provide a worthy opposition to the BJP-MGP led government; however it appears that besides Curtorim Congress MLA Reginald Lourenco, no other Congress leader will be questioning the government on numerous issues of governance during the assembly session.

However, while the Congress effort overall is expected to be lack-lustre, the Independents lead by Fatorda MLA Vijai Sardesai is expected to provide the much-needed platform for heated and constructive discussion in the upcoming assembly session.

Sources close to some Congress MLAs such as Monserrates, Madkaikar, Kamat, Godinho and Ranes reveal that these Congress MLAs will be in two minds to take on the Parrikar-government for fear of being ridiculed or becoming a victim of the ire of the Chief Minister, who has reportedly stacked up numerous issues of corruption against some of the Congress leaders.
