Addressing a press conference at party state headquarters in the city, Goa Pradesh Congress Committee (GPCC) President Girish Chodankar said,''CM has accepted that administration has collapse and priority would be to improve it. By the statement our stand has been vindicated and leaders of Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) exposed.''
