Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Mukul Roy on Saturday said that a total of 107 MLAs from the Communist Party of India (Marxist), Congress and the Trinamool Congress (TMC) will join the saffron party. He, however, did not reveal when the MLAs would join the BJP.

Speaking at a press conference, Mukul Roy said that all the lawmakers are in contact with the state BJP leadership. He also said that the party has a list prepared for all the MLAs of Congress, TMC and CPM who would be joining the BJP.

The development has come just two days after at least 10 Congress MLAs in Goa switched to the BJP in presence of party working president JP Nadda and Chief Minister Pramod Sawant and amid the Karnataka crisis where 16 Congress and Janata Dal (Secular) MLAs have tendered their resignation to the Speaker.

In Goa, 10 Congress MLAs joined the BJP on Thursday. On Saturday, three of the 10 Congress MLAs were inducted into the state cabinet by Chief Minister Pramod Sawant.

To induct the new ministers, Pramod Sawant had asked three Goa Forward Party (GFP) ministers and one Independent MLA to resign from his ministry so that the new ministers could be inducted.

In Karnataka, a total of 16 MLAs of the Congress and JD(S) submitted their resignation to the Karnataka assembly Speaker. According to the latest reports, five more MLAs have moved the Supreme Court, alleging the Speaker has not been accepting their resignation.

Meanwhile, MTB Nagaraj has said that he will withdraw his resignation if K Sudhakar also takes it back. 

Nagaraj’s statement came hours after DK Shivakumar and some other Congress leaders met the MLA at his residence. He was expected to address the media later in the day.
