The Congress in Goa will meet with the Governor at Raj Bhavan to stake a claim to form the next government in the state. The Congress which ended up being the single largest party in the state has been complaining since it did not get the first invite to form the government.

All the legislators would arrive at the Congress House in Goa where a Congress Legislature Party meeting is scheduled. All the MLAs would meet under the leadership of Digvijaya Singh and plan the next course of action.

Following the legislature party meeting, all the MLAs would visit Raj Bhavan where they would call on the Governor and stake a claim to form the government in the state.

The Congress is in talks with Churchill Alemao of the NCP in a bid to get to the magic number. If the Congress manages to rope in the NCP leader, then its tally would go up to 22 in the 40 member house. The BJP too is using its resources in Delhi to get to the top NCP leadership so that it can rope Alemao on its side.

The Supreme Court would hold the key in this situation. After the Congress approached the SC, doubts cropped up over the Goa Forward's support for the BJP.
