Panaji: The Goa Congress on Tuesday took all its newly-elected 17 MLAs to the Raj Bhavan and met state Governor Mridula Sinha to seek an opportunity to prove majority in the assembly but could not get any assurance from her. The MLAs led by Congress Legislature Party leader Chandrakant Kavlekar held talks with Sinha for half-an-hour arguing that being the single-largest party, the Congress should have been called first to form the government in Goa. “We requested the governor that the Congress be given an opportunity to form the government. Allowing Parrikar to be sworn in is against the Constitution. We have majority on our side,” Goa Congress Chief Luizinho Faleiro told reporters outside Raj Bhavan. “The governor told us that she would take a decision as per her wisdom,” he said.
