Congress has rushed its senior leader Mukul Wasnik to Goa after the party said five of its 11 MLAs in the state have gone 'incommunicado'.

Congress has accused BJP of trying to engineer defection and alleged that the saffron party offered its MLAs huge amount of money to switch sides.

There was also a flurry of activity outside Goa chief minister Pramod Sawant's house as Congress leader Michael Lobo, who has now been sacked by the party as Leader of Opposition, along with his wife paid a visit to the chief minister.

Sawant has, however, dismissed it as regular visit. He told reporters that with Goa's Assembly session beginning on Monday many people are coming to meet him.
