Bangalore, Jan 17: The Bharatiya Janata Party today said it would not make any effort to form the next government in Goa where Digambar Kamat led government had plunged into a crisis.

Speaking to reporters after his arrival in the city to attend a function to facilitate former Defence Minister George Fernandes, he said, "We will keep away from Goa for now as it is the problem of Congress party. We want them to settle the skirmish themselves." He said the Goa situation was still not clear and he had only heard from media reports and party in-charge for the tiny state Rajiv Pratap Rudy.

Mr Advani said in case there was a situation where BJP needs to step in, the party's Parliamentary Board would take the decision.

Meanwhile, the BJP leader demanded holding of the mid-term Karnataka as early as possible and before May 28 when the six-month period of the President's rule comes to an end.

BJP which made its foray into South India forming a coalition government with JD(S) in the state, could, however, rule the state for just one week when the saffron party led government was pulled down by the coalition partner in October.

"I urge the centre not to delay holding assembly elections in Karnataka," he said.
