Panaji, Jul 24 (UNI) The executive of the NCP, a coalition partner of the Congress-led government in Goa, today expressed serious concern over ''continued denial'' of government posts to the office-bearers despite repeated pleas.
The executive had also authorised state Revenue minister Jose Phillip D'Souza to brief the NCP high command in Delhi soon to take the initiative in redressing the grievance at the earliest before the disheartened and disgruntled party cadres broke.
The executive meeting, chaired by its state unit president and former chief minister Dr Wilfred D'Souza, also demanded allocation of Pale Assembly seat to the NCP, which was a power group of six in the 40-member state legislative assembly.
The Pale seat fell vacant following the demise of the Congress incumbent, but the Congress maintained that it would field its own candidate come what may.
The executive had also conveyed its greetings to Prime Minister Manmohan Singh for winning the crucial vote of confidence on July 22 in Parliament.
