New Delhi: Ten 10 Congress MLAs from Goa on Thursday joined the BJP in presence of the party's working president JP Nadda and Goa Chief Minister Pramod Sawant.
The Congress, which had emerged as single-largest party after 2017 Assembly polls in the coastal state, has now been reduced to five legislators.
Earlier on Thursday, Sawant met BJP President Amit Shah and both leaders are believed to have held deliberations over a reshuffle in the state Cabinet.
Party sources said a Cabinet reshuffle in Goa is likely with the induction of the 10 MLAs.
After the 2017 assembly polls, a hung assembly had emerged, with Congress winning 17 and BJP 13 seats.
