Panaji: Congress party is on the verge of facing a major set back with two of its senior legislators Subhash Shirodkar and Dayanand Sopte all set to join BJP on Tuesday.
Both the legislators left for Delhi in a late flight on Monday night. BJP minister Vishwajit Rane has spearheaded entire poaching episode, which will save Manohar Parrikar-led government from slipping into minority on the floor of the House.
While Sopte and Shirodkar refused to divulge details about their Delhi visit, BJP sources stated that National President Amit Shah is scheduled to meet them on Tuesday at 9 a.m.
Sources also stated that few more Congress legislators would be joining BJP.
