Congress claimed that the Governor has not followed constitutional convention of inviting the single largest party to form the government.
He said he saw the letter of Goa Governor Mridula Sinha having appointed Manohar Parrikar as the Goa CM on 12 March, a day after the poll results, before "any floor test or anything happened", charging "So it is hard for us to stake claim if the governor is already acting in a partisan manner".
Differences also erupted within the Congress on how the Goa issue had been handled.
In Goa, the Supreme Court has ordered a floor test on Thursday after the Congress challenged Governor Mridula Sinha's invitation to the BJP's Manohar Parrikar to form the government.
The allegations were rubbished by Union minister Venkaiah Naidu and said the BJP had complete right to create a coalition as no party got clear majority. The Sarkaria Commission has also laid this down clearly.

Moreover, the party could have protested before the state governor and convince her by presenting the list of supporters. The BJP's claim should have been considered only if the Congress pleaded inability or failed the floor test.
