The BJP on Thursday ruled out that it is making moves to form a government in Goa following the Digambar Kamat government plunging into a crisis and being reduced to a minority in the state.

"As far as we are concerned, we will keep away from Goa now," BJP leader LK Advani told reporters on arrival here to attend a function to felicitate former Defence Minister George Fernandes.

"It is the Congress party's problem. Let them settle it by themselves," the former Deputy Prime Minister and opposition leader in the Lok Sabha remarked while referring to the banner of revolt faced by the Congress-led government in Goa.

"Frankly speaking, I can only say apart from reports appearing in media, our party in-charge in Goa in the last assembly election Rajiv Pratap Rudy has informed me of the developments," Advani said.

The BJP leader, however, said if a situation arise warranting BJP's coming into the picture on government formation in Goa, the party's Parliamentary Board would meet and take a decision.
