In the meantime, the North Goa District Magistrate has imposed Section 144 in anticipation of the Session from July 18 to August 10, which forbids gatherings of five people or more, taking out or organizing procession, carrying firearms or weapons, wielding swords, using loudspeakers, and lighting fire in any open area within a 500-meter radius of the Porvorim Assembly Complex.
The opposition parties on Tuesday held a meeting to discuss their strategy for the session.
The meeting was attended by legislators from the Congress, Aam Aadmi Party (AAP), Revolutionary Goans Party and Goa Forward Party.
The ruling BJP has the support of 33 MLAs in the 40-member Goa Assembly.
“It is in the interest of Goa that all the seven MLAs from the opposition should work unitedly on the floor of the House. United Opposition is the flavour of the season,” Alemao told reporters.
He said that the opposition members have tabled several questions, some of them clubbed with each other, to “expose” the state government on the floor of the House.
