Goa Speaker disallows notice by Cong. MLAs

14-day intimation needed to be given
Goa Speaker Pramod Sawant on Wednesday disallowed a notice filed by 16 Congress MLAs seeking to move a motion for his removal. Mr. Sawant said the notice was not in line with procedures, as well as provisions of the Constitution. A statement by the Speaker’s Office said 14-day prior intimation needed to be given for such a notice during an ongoing session.
“The Governor has not summoned the Assembly currently. Summoning can be done after six months from the last day of the immediate past session. Therefore, the Speaker has advised the Legislature Secretary to accordingly communicate to the Leader of Opposition that the said notice has been disallowed on the grounds of maintainability,” the statement said. It also said the Speaker’s action was based on the opinion of the Advocate General. On September 21, the Congress MLAs led by Leader of Opposition Chandrakant Kavlekar had issued the notice under rule 243 of the rules of procedure and conduct of business of the Goa Assembly read with article 179(C) of the Constitution.
