Panaji : Even as  Rahul Gandhi crisscrosses  country with his  Bharat Jodo rally, breakaway within the party continues unabated.  The latest blow, and a major one, comes from Goa  where, eight Congress MLAs including former Chief Minister bid goodbye to join BJP.

Hopping away to the saffron camp are : former CM Digambar Kamat, Michel Lobo, Delilah Lobo, Rajesh Phaldesai, Kedar Naik, Sankalp Amankar, Aleixo Sequeira and Rudolf Fernandes.

This leaves Congress with just three MLAs in the state.
