(Before It's News)

Having emerged as the single largest party in Goa, how the Grand Old Party frittered away its chances of forming government in the coastal state will continue to torment its leaders for some time.

While the party’s top leadership squarely put the blame on state Governor Mridula Sinha for “not allowing it to form the government in the state”, the latter turned the tables on local leaders, saying they derailed their own prospects of government formation.

Speaking to Mail Today from Panaji, Sinha said: “They (local Congress leaders) never called, nor did anyone come to meet me officially to stake claim for government formation. They only took time on Tuesday and came to meet me. But by then everything was decided according to the provision laid in the Indian Constitution. I had invited the BJP-led coalition led by Manohar Parrikar to form the government as the latter had rightly done the prerequisites in the last 48 hours.”
