Remove Goa governor, BJP to President
The BJP on Monday gave President Pratibha Patil a memorandum with over two lakh signatures, demanding SC Jamir be removed as Governor of Goa.
"We request you to initiate appropriate steps to replace the Governor of Goa, in the interest of maintaining high dignity of the post," said the memorandum, which was given to Patil by Goa’s Leader of Opposition Manohar Parrikar and Goa BJP chief Shripad Naik.
"The Raj Bhavan has become a den of Congress functionaries", said the memorandum." The document listed Jamir’s actions since he saved the Digamber Kamat government by proroguing the assembly session after it was reduced to a minority after three ministers resigned and three other MLAs withdrew support.
BJP spokesman Rajiv Pratap Rudy, also in charge of the party affairs in Goa, said the BJP would not sit idle after the Governor went out of his way to help the Kamat government. He said Jamir had allowed an ordinance to increase the contingency fund to allow government expenditure as the assembly could not pass the budget.
