The Congress in Goa Tuesday

accused Governor Mridula Sinha of being a "mute spectator" to

the "undemocratic acts" of the Manohar Parrikar government.

The Governor was acting like a "protector of the BJP-

led government forgetting her constitutional responsibility",

Goa Congress spokesman Yatish Naik told reporters.

"The Governor has completely failed to discharge her

constitutional duty. She has become a mute spectator to the

"undemocratic acts" and everything that is happening around.

"She is acting as a protector of the BJP-led

government and not as a protector of the state or its people,"

Naik alleged.

The Congress took strong objection to the holding of a

meeting of state-run Investment Promotion Board at the private

residence of Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar near here


"Holding a meeting at the private residence (of the

CM) is the most unconstitutional and undemocratic act," Naik


Naik said the BJPis known for not abiding by the

Constitution and this act shows its unconstitutional


The Congress spokesman said the Governor has

repeatedly ignored his party's request to dismiss the Parrikar
