The Chief Minister, however, declined to form House Committee while informing House that all the event management works are given following proper tender procedures.
Goa Forward MLA Vijai Sardesai also grilled Chief Minister Pramod Sawant over events. Rs 6450Cr loans have been taken in the last 3 years, and Government is spending on events.
“This has become event-managed Government. The event managers are controlling the Government; this is a scam. There should be a house committee,” said Sardesai.
The Opposition MLA also said that CM spent Rs 58 lakh for celebrating 2 years of the Pramod Sawant government, and this Cabinet approved this file with an ex post facto approval.
“Was the state government not aware that they are completing 2 years? Then why did they give an ex post facto approval,” he questioned.
