Former BJP leader and minister Michael Lobo on Thursday dismissed rumours that the top BJP leadership was in touch with him to switch over after the results next week.

Addressing a press conference in the presence of Leader of Opposition Digmbar Kamat and Goa Congress chief Girish Chodankar, Lobo said, "Don't fall prey to such rumors. Nobody will leave the Congress. Let the BJP try pressure tactics also by using the Enforcement Directorate and other agencies. We all are united and will not leave the Congress."

Lobo claimed that infact other party leaders are in touch with Congress.

"They are not interested in supporting the BJP. Not a single independent MLA or the Maharashtrawadi Gomantak Party will go near the BJP, as it back-stabbed the MGP. Nobody trusts them now," he said.

He also expressed confidence that Congres will form the next government by dislodging the BJP after the Assembly poll results come out on March 10.

"If the results are out by 3 pm on March 10, the Congress will form the government by 5 pm," he said.

He further said the people of the state would be happy after "liberation from the BJP".

Polls to elect the new state Assembly were held on February 14 this year and the counting of votes would be done on March 10.
