Goa Cabinet Reshuffle to happen soon

A group of ten Congress MLAs in Goa led by Chandrakant Kavlekar, opposition leader, on Wednesday merged with BJP, increasing its strength to 27 in the 40-seat house, leaving Congress with just only 5 MLAs.

Goa Chief Minister Pramod Sawant accompanied the group of 10 Congress MLAs to Delhi at the meeting where they were welcomed with flowers and BJP scarves.

Sawant said a decision on dropping any minister from the coalition partners will be taken after meeting senior BJP leaders Shah and JP Nadda.
