Panaji: On Monday, two Goa Congress legislators Dayanand Sopte and Subhash Shirodkar left for Delhi in the evening. Both the legislators left for the national capital with a delusion that they may soon join Bhartiya Janta Party leaving the Indian National Congress.

There have been reports from the side of a senior BJP leader that Dayanand Sopte and Subhash Shirodkar will meet BJP president Amit Shah in the national capital.

“Both the Congress MLAs will be resigning from Congress party on Tuesday and joining the BJP,” a senior BJP leader told our sources.

In 2017 State legislative assembly elections, Sopte defeated former BJP chief minister Laxmikant Parsekar and at present, he represents Mandrem constituency while Shirodkar, on the other hand, was elected on a Congress ticket from Shiroda constituency.

Sources have reported that both of them left by a midnight flight to Delhi. And a few hours before their departure, Goa Health Minister and BJP MLA Vishwajit Rane also left for Delhi.

“I am going on a business trip,” Sopte told reporters at the airport when being questioned. And when Shirodkar was asked whether he was joining the BJP, he responded, “You will come to know, if I do it”.

Talking about the political activities in Goa, the core committee of BJP and its legislature party also met in Panaji during the day.

These meetings are said to be organized at the backdrop of the poor health condition of Chief minister Manohar Parrikar. Parrikar is at present being treated for a health ailment from the doctors of Goa Medical College and Hospital at his residence at Dona Paula.

When All India Congress Committee Secretary A Chellakumar was contacted by the reporters regarding legislators Sopte and Shirodkar joining BJP, Chellakumar said that they were not resigning from the party.

“I spoke to both of them Monday evening and they have refused that they are resigning,” he said.

As of now, the Indian National Congress has 16 MLAs in the Goa Legislative Assembly. But after the resignation of Dayanand Sopte and Subhash Shirodkar, the strength would be reduced to 14.
