The Pratapsinh Rane-led Congress government in Goa on Friday won a crucial trust vote.

The House voted 17-16 in the government's favour, with Speaker Francisco Sardinha casting his vote after there was a tie.

United Goans Democratic Party legislator Mathany Saldhana was restrained from voting by the speaker by passing an ad-interim order.

It was all over within five minutes of the House assembling.

The confidence motion was put to vote amidst protests from the opposition Bharatiya Janata Party members.
