The petitioners said that even if the results of the new Assembly elections came to an erudite majority, there was a possibility of the buying and selling of MLAs. Therefore, the Supreme Court should intervene in the matter and take appropriate steps, so that it does not happen in the coming time, the petitioners urged.

According to the plea, the Bombay High Court gave its verdict, ignoring the arguments made against the Speaker’s decision. In the court, the defection in the Goa Assembly was made a merger of the party. In fact, after the 2017 Goa Assembly elections, the Speaker had filed a petition in the Bombay High Court against the recognition of the defection of Congress MLAs to BJP, terming it a merger of the party.
