The matter now will have to be listed before a special division bench, for which an appropriate request will have to be made,” Goa Congress president Girish Chodankar told media.In mid-April, Goa Speaker Rajesh Patnekar denied two disqualification petitions submitted by the Congress and the Maharashtrawadi Gomantak Party, respectively, seeking the removal of their MLAs who "defected" to the BJP in 2019.
