Ibobi quits as Manipur CM, BJP stakes claim

Goa assembly election 2017

"The people of Goa have defeated the BJP", said Singh who is here in Goa to oversee the party's affairs after counting of votes.

The Maharashtrawadi Gomantak Party (MGP), the Goa Forward Party (GFP) and the independents won three seats each, while the NCP bagged one.

"The BJP legislature party will meet in the afternoon".

The BJP's tally stands at 14 as Independent candidate Govind Gawade, supported by the party, won in Priol seat.

There was even a secret ballot to select the CLP leader - an exercise results of which were incidentally kept a secret from the media and the party's junior MLAs.

This development came after the Congress, in a dramatic development, moved the apex court against Goa Governor's decision to invite Parrikar to form government in the state, despite the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) emerging as the second largest party. We had won in three states - Punjab, Goa and Manipur. Parrikar was sworn in as the new Goa CM on Tuesday.

The e-sport concept's 1,400kg mass means it's no lightweight, but nearly a third of that comes from the car's batteries. Most significantly though, the Zoe E-sport has a completely flat floor and rear diffuser.

Further accusing the BJP of buying MLAs, Rahul said, "It is not about how soon they went, but with how much money the BJP went to steal the mandate of Goa and Manipur".

Goa Governor Mridula Sinha administered the oath of office to Parrikar at the Raj Bhavan here. Parrikar yesterday quit as the defence minister of India, a post he had been holding since November 2014 after first reshuffle of Prime Minister Narendra Modi's Cabinet.

Later, Jaitely blogged to argue that the convention has evolved from calling the single largest party to form the government bin favour of the group demonstrating majority support, while giving a number of instances in the past. "But we have an ideological fight with the BJP and we will continue to do that", said the Congress Vice-President.

Moreover, the party could have protested before the state governor and convince her by presenting the list of supporters.

According to the NDTV report, Rane and several of newly elected MLAs have expressed anger over the way Congress' general secretary and party's in-charge of Goa affairs, Digvijaya Singh, had gone about this whole business.

"I have never seen in any other state where a political party which has been rejected outright, where the CM has lost, six ministers have lost, yet they are staking claim to form the government", he told reporters here. A Congress of an earlier era would have embraced a Sarma or a Sardesai as their future but a High Command-led feudal party which is comatose has little space for those who wear their ambitions on their sleeve.
