Congress accuses BJP of engineering defections in Goa

The Congress has accused two of its Goa leaders, Michael Lobo and Digambar Kamat, of conspiring with the BJP to weaken the party in the state and influencing its MLAs to switch sides. 

The Congress has accused two of its Goa leaders, Michael Lobo and Digambar Kamat, of conspiring with the BJP to weaken the party in the state and influencing its MLAs to switch sides.

Congress has sacked Michael Lobo from the post of Leader of Opposition in Goa.

The party's Goa in-charge Dinesh Gundu Rao alleged that Michael Lobo was working with the BJP for the sake of power and position while Digamabar Kamat was doing it to save his own skin since he has many cases against him.

Rao said that BJP was trying to ensure that at least 8 Congress MLAs join the saffron party but 6 of them refused to change sides. He also added that the MLAs were offered a lot of money.

The Congress currently has 11 MLAs in Goa. Rao said five party MLAs - Lobo, Kamat, Kedar Naik, Rajesh Faldesai and Delialah Lobo - have gone incommunicado, while five others - Altone D'Costa, Sankalp Amonkar, Yuri Alemao, Carlose Alvares Ferreira, Rudolf Fernandes - were present for the press conference.

"Sixth MLA Aleixo Sequeira was in touch with party leaders and is very much with the Congress," he said.

The ruling BJP currently has 20 MLAs and also enjoys the support of five others - two from MGP and three Independents.

Congress had won 11 seats in the last Assembly polls held in February this year
