Goa: Shiv Sena demands President's Rule in CM Manohar Parrikar's absence

It's so odd to see that GOA chief Minister Manohar Parrikar is running the government of his right away from the USA-United States of America. The Chief Minister left to the United States for some medical issues where the reasons are yet to be left undisclosed.

There would not have been a problem, if state was facing normal circumstances.

"In absence of Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar, the state is left headless, and deserves to be ruled by [the] president of India through his emissaries", Goa Shiv Sena spokesperson Rakhi Prabhudesai Naik said, according to PTI. She further added that no one has the authority to take actions on key issues, like the impending crisis in the mining industry. But the state is left headless.

The apex court had, in February, quashed an order from Goa government directing the mining companies to renew their licences and ordered the mining industries to put an end to mining activities by March 16.

Naik alleged that the people dependent on mining industry are only getting false promises and seeing the "melodrama" of delegations going to Delhi. In his statement, Naik demanded the President's rule be imposed in Goa as the state is facing some major issues with the mining industry.

'Those who know state's politics will admit that leaders like Vijai Sardesai and Sudin Dhavalikar can not share the meeting. It does not have any representation in the Goa Assembly.
