The Goa government is making necessary efforts to get "special status" for the state and a resolution passed in the Legislative Assembly in this connection was still pending with the Centre, state Urban Development Minister Francis D'Souza said today.

Replying to a question by Congress MLA Jeniffer Monserratte in the Assembly, he said that Goa wanted special status on the lines of Mizoram, Uttarakhand and Himachal Pradesh.

"The government intends to have special status for Goa. It is making necessary efforts in the matter with the Central government," DSouza told the House.

He informed that the Assembly had passed a resolution to this effect which had been forwarded to the Centre for its consideration. It was pending with the Union government, he added.
