Eight out of 11 Cong MLAs join BJP in Goa, CM Sawant says Congress Chodo Yatra has began

Panaji: As the Congress party is trying hard to revive its roots through the Congress Jodo Yatra, eight out of its 11 MLAs joined the BJP today. The MLAs, led by Digambar Kamat and Michael Lobo, joined the saffron party.

In the 40-member house, the Congress party’s strength was reduced to just three as eight of its MLAs switched sides. Eight MLAs defecting as a group, representing two-thirds of the party’s strength, cannot be disqualified under the anti-defection law. Delilah Lobo, Michael Lobo’s wife, Sankalp Amonkar, Aleixo Sequeira, Rajesh Phaldesai, Kedar Naik, and Rudolf Fernandes are among them.

Chief Minister Pramod Sawant said that all these leaders have joined the BJP and they would work to make a new India as per the vision of Prime Minister Narendra Modi. He took a swipe at Rahul Gandhi’s Bharat Jodo Yatra, saying Congress Chodo Yatra has begun from Goa, leaders of the grand old party have quit in a lump sum  and from Kanyakumari to Kashmir, its leaders will quit the party.

The Congress party spokesperson, Pawan Khera, reacted sharply to this defection and said it is Operation Kichad (Mud) and alleged that the BJP has used all kinds of tactics—including threatening through goons, using central probe agencies, luring with money—to execute this as the BJP is rattled by the Bharat Jodo Yatra.

 

AICC in charge of Goa, Dinesh Gundu Rao criticized this development in strong words, he asked Digambar Kamat and Michael Lobo, isn’t this the height of betrayal and shamelessness by them?

He wrote in a twitter post saying “People of Goa voted for these MLA’s as they were Congress candidates. They had sworn in front of temples, church and dargah that they will not defect to the BJP. They gave affidavits that they’ll always be with the Congress and took a pledge on the constitution.”

If BJP thinks that by doing #OperationKhichad in #Goa they are going to get stronger, then they will be in for a surprise. People of India is witnessing their unholy and corrupt politics. Their Jar of Sins is filling up. The people will fight back. We will fight back,” Dinesh Gundu Rao.
