Parrikar sails through trust vote in Goa; Congress left with one ‘missing’ MLA

Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar won the trust vote in the Goa assembly, with 22 MLAs supporting his government. The Congress got the support of 16 legislators. It was a comedy of sorts as apart from being the single largest party, the Congress failed to stake a claim and was reduced to checking toilets of the Goa Assembly for one of its missing MLAs, who later resigned from the party.
