Cabinet passes resolution to dissolve assembly
PANAJI: Chief Minister Pramod Sawant held a meeting of the outgoing cabinet and passed a resolution to dissolve the assembly.
The cabinet also passed a resolution thanking the people of Goa for supporting his government ever since Sawant took charge in 2019.
“We had called members of the last cabinet, and a resolution was passed to dissolve the Assembly from Monday,” said Sawant.
He further said that it would be sent to the Governor, after which the assembly would be dissolved, and a meeting of fresh legislators would be held.
“I was a Chief Minister for the last three years, and people gave us a chance to work for Goa. The people appreciated our work towards infrastructure and human development along with other sectors,” he said.
During the recently held election, Goa has elected its new 40-members, who would be sworn in soon.
BJP emerged as the single largest party with 20 seats, while the Congress-led GFP alliance got 12 seats.
MGP and AAP managed to get two seats each, while Revolutionary Goans also got hold of one seat.
Three independent candidates have also won.
