Panaji: The Goa BJP on Thursday said that porn scandal involving ministers from the party in the neighbouring Karnataka will not affect its prospects in March 3 Assembly polls in Goa.

"These are small things. We are not fighting the election in Karnataka," BJP leader and former Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar said.

"There are people all across the country who do worse things. Congress leaders have chopped women and burnt them in a tandoor...Then there was the Bhanwari Devi case (from Rajasthan). They (the three BJP ministers in Karnataka who resigned on Thursday) were only watching and not doing it," he said.

The Goa BJP said that the Karnataka sleaze row will not affect the Assembly polls.

He also said the action taken by BJP against the ministers, who were asked to resign, should be applauded. "I congratulate the party leaders for acting quickly and swiftly without any delay in the matter."
