The Congress today said it has decided to sought President Ram Nath Kovind's intervention in appointing a "full-time" chief minister in Goa, as incumbent Manohar Parrikar is undergoing treatment in the US since March this year.
"We are now left with no other option but to approach the President of India. Goa cannot run without a full time chief minister," said Goa Pradesh Congress Committee (GPCC) president Girish Chodankar.
He said Goa has been going through a constitutional crisis in the absence of a regular CM.
"It has been more than 100 days now that the state is without chief minister and there is no fair idea when he (Parrikar) will actually return," he said.
