Expenditure on Court Case Must be Recovered from the CM- Moreno Rebello



Panaji: The high handedness of the BJP Government under the leadership of Chief Minister Dr. Pramod Sawant is repeatedly causing loss to the State Treasury. After receiving severe bashing from the Hon’ble High Court as well as the Hon’ble Supreme Court in the matter pertaining to Reservations in Municipal Elections, no lessons were learnt and the BJP Government was once again fell flat on the face after the Hon’ble High Court direction to hold the Panchayat Elections within next 45 days. The entire cost of the legal proceedings must be recovered from the Chief Minister Dr. Pramod Sawant demanded Congress Leader Moreno Rebello in a press statement issued here today.This is a slap on the face of the of Chief Minister Dr. Pramod Sawant who had blamed the NGO’s for compelling the Government to incur huge expenditure on fighting cases in the Courts and NGT. It is the faulty, undemocratic and unconstitutional decision of the Government which compelled the Citizens to approach the Court seeking direction on holding timely Panchayat Elections. I also demand that entire cost of the petitioner’s should also be paid by the Chief Minister Dr. Pramod Sawant, stated Moreno Rebello.The intentions of the Government to completely sideline the Other Backward Castes stands exposed with the ruling of the High Court. I want to categorically state that the Government deliberately kept finalizing of the OBC Quota reservation on hold. I want to warn the Government that they should refrain from approaching the Supreme Court to seek relief from on the High Court Order by spending Tax Payers Money stated Moreno Rebello.This is a lesson for all those who have extended their support to the BJP Government which is most undemocratic, anti-constitutional and oppressor of the OBC’s. I demand that all the opposition MLA’s must oppose the Government move to approach the Supreme Court and force the Government to hold the elections in time. I also demand that the Chief Minister Dr. Pramod Sawant must apologize to the OBC Community for depriving them of their Constitutional Rights.
