MLAs take oath at Goa assembly before BJP proves majority via floor test

MLAs of the BJP- led coalition government headed by Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar took oath on Thursday minutes before the party is scheduled to prove their majority via floor test. Parrikar, who was sworn-in as chief minister along with nine other MLAs on Tuesday, claims to have the support of 22 MLAs - 13 from his party the BJP, three from MGP, three from Goa Forward and two Independents. The Congress, however, claims they have the numbers and Parrikar will go down in history as a politician who resigned as defence minister to become a chief minister for two days.
