After meeting with the Bharatiya Janata party chief Amit Shah in New Delhi, two Goa Congress MLAs resigned from the party and going to join the BJP.

Talking to news agency ANI, one of the MLAs Subhash Shirodakr said “We are joining BJP today. We expect 2-3 more MLAs to come, not today but in the coming days”.

Dayanand Sopte and  Subhash Shirodkar are the two Congress MLAs who lefte for Delhi at midnight amid the speculation that they are joining the BJP.

Reacting on Congress MLAs’ meeting with Amit Shah, Congress Goa in-charge said “After both of them left, I enquired and got to know that Vishwajit (Rane) convinced them to come to Delhi. I think he bargained with BJP high command that if he brings these two, he should be made CM”.

Accusing Amit Shah and PM Modi of arm-twisting them, Kumar said “When Vishwajit left Congress,he told me that Amit Shah&Narendra Modi are after his life. He said he is a Congress man but being a father he has to safeguard his family&so he's staying with BJP. I'm worried if these 2 MLAs were also threatened like him”.
