The Congress on Sunday said the BJP was trying to cut short the upcoming Assembly session to avoid embarrassment and deliberately dilly-dallying on OBC reservations to compel citizens to approach the courts and thereby delay the panchayat elections.

The grand old party also said that the BJP was running scared of facing their young MLAs on the floor of the House.

“With lack of guts to face the Congress-led opposition and deliberate goof-ups to ward reservations, it appears that the double engine BJP government will curtail the Assembly session and eventually delay the panchayat polls by compelling citizens to approach the court,” said Deputy CLP Leader Sankalp Amonkar.

“Chief Minister Pramod Sawant must have realised that facing us for almost 25 days in the Assembly will expose the BJP government completely. He must have got the idea of what lies ahead after having a glance at the Legislative Assembly questions tabled by us,” he added.

He said Quepem MLA Altone D'Costa's private member resolution on scrapping the three linear projects and withdrawal of cases filed against peaceful protesters must have sent shivers in the BJP camp after the same got listed for discussion.

He further said that Cuncolim MLA Yuri Alemao also punctured BJP's publicity stunts by getting his resolution on Chieftains Revolt listed in the business.

“We have a strategy in place and will corner the government completely. We are new and energetic MLAs who want to show the best performance,” Amonkar said in a press note released here.

According to the Mormugao MLA, the BJP cadres were upset with the government’s goof-ups to ward reservations and this anger would transform into votes against BJP-backed candidates.
