"I think Amit Shah is not a leader. Vishwajit has referred to him as a dealer, who is coming to Goa for dealings," Chodankar told reporters, hours after BJP's Rane said "at least two Congress MLAs" were likely to meet Shah to speak about the possibility of switching over from the opposition party to the ruling dispensation.
On Sunday, Shah is expected to hold a meeting each with ruling coalition partners and members of BJP's legislative wing respectively, before addressing a gathering of BJP's booth workers at an indoor stadium near the state capital.
Chodankar said the Congress on Sunday would also demand appointment of a full-time Chief Minister in the absence of the ailing Manohar Parrikar, who is currently in a US hospital undergoing treatment for advanced pancreatic cancer.
