It refers to usual drama of side-change by MLAs in Goa this time to get powerful chair in the state cabinet. Unethical ‘sale’ of MLAs for sake of ministry can and should be contained by electing Chief Minister by secret and compulsory vote of members of the Lower House through EVMs on nominations signed by at least one-third members. Such an elected CM may be removed by the same process but with compulsion of naming alternate leader in the same motion. Only non-members having not contested elections for last one year should be appointed as Ministers so that MLAs may care best for their constituencies and such appointed ministers rather than themselves to lobby for ministerial posts! It will ensure full terms of assemblies and stability of governments apart from advantage of experts rather than political heavyweights and defectors being appointed as ministers.
