BJP moves legislators into hotel ahead of trust vote

Goa Chief Minister Pramod Sawant is to face the crucial floor test today itself.

He was administered oath of office yesterday after the demise of former CM Manohar Parrikar.

It is learnt that BJP has moved its legislators to a hotel ahead of the trust vote.

This could be as the strength of the 40-member house has been reduced to 36 in wake of death of Manohar Parrikar, BJP legislator Francis D’Souza and resignations of two Congress lawmakers Subhash Shirodkar and Dayanand Sopte.

The BJP-led government claims support of 21 legislators–12 from the BJP, three each of allies Goa Forward Party (GFP) and Maharashtrawadi Gomantak Party (MGP) and three independents.
