Goa CM meets Amit Shah

Friday, July 12, 2019

New Delhi: Goa Chief Minister Pramod Sawant met BJP president Amit Shah yesterday, and both leaders are believed to have held deliberations over a reshuffle in the state Cabinet after 10 Congress MLAs joined the saffron party on Wednesday.

Sawant arrived in the national capital with the 10 MLAs and has been meeting senior BJP leaders, including its working president J P Nadda.

The 10 MLAs accompanied Sawant in the meeting with Nadda at the BJP headquarters.

There was no official word over what transpired in his meeting with Shah, also the Union home minister, at the latter's office in Parliament.

Party sources said a Cabinet reshuffle in Goa is likely with the induction of the 10 MLAs.

Sawant will have to drop current ministers, many of whom are BJP allies whose support was crucial to his government's survival, to accommodate the defectors from the Congress.

With its numbers in the 40-member assembly swelling to 27, the BJP is no longer dependent on its allies, including Goa Forward party and Independents.

With the Congress accusing the BJP of "murder of democracy" over its MLAs' switchover, the Goa chief minister asserted that they have joined his party "willingly" and to push development work in the state.

Chandrakant Kavlekar, who was the leader of the opposition in the assembly before he spearheaded a coup in his own party and joined the BJP along with nine other MLAs, told reporters that they wanted development work in their constituencies.
