The Congress leadership, sources say, is grappling with another contentious issue – how to go about appointing the leader of the Congress Legislature party (CLP). Sources say the party is treading a cautious path since a section of the party leadership seemed insisting the party should maintain the delicate communal balance while filling up the vacant post. Aware that poachers are on the prowl, who have not given up hopes of luring party MLAs into the saffron brigade, Congress leaders have indeed called for a cautious approach on the CLP post. Any questions?
What’s next on Vijai’s political agenda?
What’s next, Vijaibab Sardesai, is a question doing the rounds in political circles as curtains came down on the Assembly session.

Colva PI’s transfer to Margao raises eyebrows
Hazard a guess how come the Colva police station had no full-fledged station in-charge, when the government had only recently posted Police Inspector Tulsidas Naik at the police station. Many eyebrows have been raised along Salcete coastal belt, which comes under the Colva police station jurisdiction over PI Tulsidas Naik’s decision to proceed on leave. Cuncolim Police Station in-charge, PI Tukaram Chawan is presently holding additional charge of Colva police station to fill up the void. Many questions, however, remain unanswered over Tulsidas Naik’s decision over proceeding on leave and his sudden transfer to the Margao police station on Friday.
