06/07/2014 …The state congress party on Saturday criticized the state bjp party for having carried out vilification campaign against the goa governor bharat vir wanchoo pressurizing him to resign as the goa governor which was wrong and unconstitutional
It may be noted that the Goa Governor BV Wanchoo has resigned, hours after he was questioned by the Central Bureau of Investigation on Friday as a witness in connection with alleged irregularities in the purchase of 12 helicopters meant for VVIP use from AgustaWestland, an Anglo-Indian defense manufacturer.
Mr Wanchoo became the governor of Goa in May, 2012. His tenure was scheduled to end in 2017, but after today’s questioning by the CBI, he opted to resign from his post like the Governor of West Bengal MK Narayanan did last week after being questioned by the CBI in the same case.
Addressing media person’s gpcc chief john Fernandes said that the procedure followed by the bjp led government asking a governor to resign was wrong as there was a judgment laid down by the Supreme Court where in the governors appointed by the earlier government should not be replaced or hounded out
Mr fernandes said that there was a need for the bjp led government at the centre to read the rules book where in only rashtrapati bhavan had the right to ask resignation of the governor of a certain state
