Goa sex scandal, What's the whole matter

Ground Report | New Delhi: Goa sex scandal; Hours after a Bihar woman was allegedly victimized by the Congress over the alleged and direct involvement of Urban Development Minister Milind Naik in an all-out political war in a ghastly sex scandal, the minister resigned from the Goa cabinet. His resignation was immediately accepted and sent to the Governor for final formalities.

Minister resign

Naik is the first minister during the entire term of this government, expiring in two months, to be forced to resign on moral grounds over an alleged act of felony criminal misconduct.

The Chief Minister’s Office (CMO) issued a statement late Wednesday night saying that Naik has tendered his resignation to ensure a “free and fair investigation”. He said Naik will present his side and “fight” at an individual level. “The allegations against him are personal and what he will do about it will be a matter of his personal decision,” Sawant said.
