BJP gunning for Babush's head

PTI, PANAJI | 03 April 2011 21:59 IST

Bharatiya Janata Party has sought dismissal of education minister Atanasio Monserrate from the cabinet after he was detained with unaccounted money at Mumbai air port.

Speaking at a press conference, BJP Goa unit chief Laxmikant Parsekar said that the party would adopt all the democratic means to ensure that Monserrate is dropped from the cabinet. 

The opposition party is planning to move an adjournment motion on Tuesday when state legislative assembly will discuss state budget. 

"We will not allow such a tainted Minister to continue running our government," he said. 

Parsekar said that they have sought appointment of the Governor Dr S S Sidhu on Tuesday to seek his intervention in sacking Monserrate from the state cabinet. 

"We expect that the Governor will execute his powers and ask Chief Minister to sack Monserrate," he said. 

The Congress minister was detained at Mumbai airport on Saturday on his way to Dubai  for carrying unaccounted money in foreign currencies. 

The BJP leader also wondered as to why the state chief minister Digambar Kamat was silent on the issue. 

He demanded that the chief minister should make a statement as to how many ministers went abroad and whether they had taken permission from ministry of external affairs for the same.

Any move to bring in probity and values in public life and punishment to dishonesty ---is what the common man expects from the politicians who claim to belong to Party with a difference......

Sing, shout or make all the strange noises, but the nightingale will sing its own tune and return to its roost.
