MARGAO: Surprised over the defection of 10 Congress MLAs to the ruling BJP, Deputy Chief Minister Vijai Sardesai, claimed that it was a two-and-half-year-old proposal and added that he was not communicated by the NDA regarding the development. 

Sardesai said, "I was not given an indication by the BJP, but by Babu Kavalekar and Babush Monserrate. For the last two-and-a-half years, I have been constantly told that if I don't go with them (Congress) and don't leave the BJP they will go there". 

He said, "I am not a part of the political upheaval. There is a party which has split and there is another party, which has accepted. I belong to none of these parties and my role in this political upheaval is non-existent. As far as the numbers are concerned, we are not in a position to talk. Hence, we are waiting and watching the senior partners in the coalition government. By far, no indications as for the composition of the government or the cabinet have come." 

Revealing his commitment to the coalition government in Goa, he said, "I continue to be in the NDA, which is a fact and my role in forming this government cannot be erased by the political upheaval. That role and our membership of the NDA is there. It is for the senior partner to tell us the status of this existence".

"Goa Forward has no control of the situation, now, whatever we want, is not in our control because the numbers don't favour us. Till the decision is taken, I don't want to comment and after the decision, we can analyse it. I don't find much of a need other than having a small session with their leadership," Sardesai said.
