·1-min read

Panaji, June 29 (PTI) The Congress in Goa on Monday demanded that the BJP government comes out with a white paper detailing the exact financial condition of the state in view of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Congress Legislative Party (CLP) has also demanded a financial package for weaker sections of society who are worst-hit by the lockdown, said Leader of Opposition Digambar Kamat.

He also demanded that the tenure of the next month's Assembly session be extended from two weeks in view of a string of issues affecting the coastal state.

'The period of two weeks is far less to discuss the budget which would be passed during the session,' he said.

With five MLAs, the Congress is the largest Opposition party in the 40-member House. The Goa Forward Party (GFP) has 3 MLAs while the MGP and the NCP each have one legislator.

Independent MLA Rohan Khaunte is also part of the opposition bloc. PTI RPS NSK NSK
