The bJP’s Goa unit rebuked Congress for protesting a march to Goa’s Chief Minister Mr Manohar Panniakr in order to get his resignation. According to a news report by The Indian Express, Bhartiya Janta Party’s Goa wing compared former Prime Minister Jawahar Lal Nehru to Goa’s chief minister Manohar Pannikar. The BJP asked on Wednesday that Nehru, too, was ill during his last year, then why Congress didn’t sack him.
Goa wing of Bjp’s president, Mr Vinay Tenudlkar, called for a press conference and said, “Nehru was suffering from paralysis and could not function as a Prime Minister ought to.” “At that time, our leaders, including Atal Bihari Vajpayee, or the Jan Sangh did not take out a morcha to his house and demand his resignation, as we saw in Goa,” he added.
Tendulkar also said, “Congress’s leader Sharad Pawar was treated in foreign when was on the chair of Agriculture Minister. It was the government of UPA led by Congress, then. Did BJP raise the issue, then? Wasn’t Congress silent then? Did Congress sack there Ministers? Well, If they didn’t sack their ministers, how are they expecting BJP to do same?”
Congress replied to the questions asked by BJP and said, “BJP’s remembering of Nehru is just a bluff. They should just answer the main question: does Goa have a functioning government?”
On Tuesday, more than a hundred protestors marched to Goa’s Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar’s home in Punji to ask for his resignation. The protestors include many social workers, members of Congress and some political activists.

Congress members and other political activists are claiming that governance of Goa id affecting by the condition of CM. And he should resign from his post in order to keep governance working.
