Goa BJP legislators shifted to private farm house

February 19, 2005 12:17 IST

Seventeen Bharatiya Janata Party MLAs from Goa, who were flown to Jaipur from Mumbai on Thursday night to keep the party's flock together ahead of a confidence vote in the state assembly, were shifted to a private farm house on Friday night.

The "guests from Goa", BJP sources said, have been shifted to a private farm house on the Jaipur-Ajmer road, about 20 km from Jaipur.

The newly-installed Congress-led government headed by Pratapsinh Rane will seek a confidence vote on February 24.

The tourist resort, where the MLAs were put up earlier, was crowded with journalists on Friday prompting BJP leadership to look for an alternate accommodation for its MLAs.
