“No decision has been taken yet on it,” Sawant told reporters at the Goa International Airport in Dabolim, South Goa, after return from New Delhi.

He, along with seven newly-inducted BJP MLAs, met Union Home Minister Amit Shah, party National President J P Nadda, among others in he national capital.

He said during his visit he discussed with the national leaders about next Lok Sabha elections to be held in 2024.

With eight Congress MLAs joining the ruling party, it is being speculated that Sawant may go for a cabinet reshuffle.

After induction of the Congress MLAs, the chief minister had met Governor P S Shreedharan Pillai at Raj Bhavan near the city.

However, when asked about motive of the meeting, he had said that it was to discuss about the programmes to be held on the occasion of Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s birthday.
