G7 backtracks, though boycotts cabinet meet


The G7 put up a defensive offence today, extending their deadline by two more days, though they boycotted the cabinet meeting.

Transport minister Sudin Dhawalikar has even threatened not to support to finance bills in the upcoming Assembly session, if both PWD minister Churchill Alemao and deputy speaker Mauvin Godinho don't apologise.

Chief minister Digambar Kamat however has said there is no threat to his government due to this.

"The matter would be sorted out by the high command of both the Congress and the NCP", he said.

In the absence of health minister Vishwajeet Rane, who is out of station, six members of G7 today morning decided not to attend the cabinet meeting. They met first at the house of education minister Babush Monseratte and then at Dhawalikar's official bungalow at Altinho.

Interestingly, opposition leader Manohar Parrikar has described this drama as nothing but pressure tactics within the ruling coalition. He does not look at it as a toppling game.

"However, if something happens, we would prefer mid-term polls and not formation of alternate government," he clarified.

The offensive put up by the G7 also appeared to have weakened as NCP's Goa in-charge Prakash Binsale also changed his yesterday's stand.

He refused to give any commitment on the threat of pulling out of the government given by G7. "They have expressed their sentiments, but hopefully the matter would be sorted out", he said.

NCP national secretary Jitendra Deshprabhu also made it clear that NCP will not pull out of the government since it has alliance at local as well as national level. is now on Telegram & also Youtube. Kindly subscribe for free & remain updated.

Nobody will pull out from the Govt. The The common man feels that the Ministerial chair can't be left so easily as it has become a tool to amass huge assets as can be seen fro Madhu Koda, who while in chair, gathered more than 4000 crores as is being reported! Is it the service to the common man or is it exploitation of the common man?

Poor Mr. Digamber Kamat! Stripped of all the major portfolios which he should have held as a Chief Minister, I do not know what he can do for Goa. Pity on you Mr. Chief Minister. Finance and Home portfolio was always held by the CMs prior to Mr Kamat assuming the office of CM. Poor fellow! May only God help him in running the administration of Goa without any “Zot” to till the land – Menino (Valpoi)
