Parrikar: Common Minimum Programme declaration postponed to June 18

The declaration of the much awaited Common Minimum Programme (CMP) has been postponed to June 18. Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar informed on the sidelines of a event. The date is also remembered as Goa Revolution day in state.

CMP was supposed to be declared today but had to be postponed due to the ongoing code of conduct enforced in the state because of Panchayat elections.

“We have kept the announcement of common minimum programme on hold as the code of conduct is in force for panchayat elections. We will now announce it on June 18,” Parrikar was quoted by PTI.

CMP is slated to guide the governance in the state for this term. Parrikar had assured it will be designed while keeping the alliance partners such as Maharashtrawadi Gomantak Party  (MGP), Goa Forward Party  (GFP) and independent MLAs in confidence.

Panchayat elections will be held on June 11 and counting will be conducted on June 13.
