A BJP legislator in Goa claimed that he might face raids from central agencies if he spoke against his own party."For the last twenty years, I have not been in wrong news. I do not know what will happen from tomorrow," said Francis D'Souza, who was law minister in the Manohar Parrikar-led cabinet before being dropped.

"I might get raided by Income Tax, Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI), Enforcement Directorate (ED), or I may be even booked under the National Security Act for speaking against the party," he said.

Mr D'Souza alleged that a former minister in the Laxmikant Parsekar government was raided by the Income Tax department after he spoke against the party for not giving him ticket in the 2017 assembly election.
