Senior Congress leader Digvijaya Singh on Friday raised the issue of Goa elections in the Rajya Sabha and demanded a disussion on the conduct of Goa Governor Mridula Sinha, who invited BJP over Congress to form the government in the state despite Congress being the single-largest party.

However, Deputy Chairman P.J. Kurien said role of the Governor can be discussed only after a substantive notice is given.

Meanwhile, Congress protested in well of Rajya Sabha, raises slogan Loktantra ki hatya band karo, band karo over Goa issue.

As the din continued, Kurien adjourned the house till 12 noon.

Despite Congress being the single largest party, the Governor invited BJP-led by former Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar to form the government.

Earlier today, Digvijaya said that he will raise the issue of Goa elections in front of President Pranab Mukherjee. "Narendra Modi is not god, he can be stopped. For that political will is needed among parties who are against communal forces," Digvijaya said.

Raising suspicion on the behaviour of MLA Vishvajeet Rane, Digvijay said that even though Rane signed a whip at 10am on Thursday he was missing during the floor test two hours later.
