In Goa, the Congress emerged as the largest party in the 2017 elections, winning a majority of seats. In Goa, which has a total of 40 seats, the general majority is 21. The Congress is close to 17 seats. The BJP, which won 13 seats, formed a coalition government with other parties. Later, several Congress MLAs joined the BJP. With this, the strength of the BJP reached 25.
The absence of Manohar Parrikar, who has been the BJP’s compass in Goa from the beginning, is a major blow to the party. This time Trinamool is also entering the Goa election ring. The Aam Aadmi Party is also contesting. Compared to the last elections .. now the situation in the Congress has become worse. The election is likely to be contested by the BJP vs. Trinamool, the AAP’s main rival. Several Congress leaders have already joined the Trinamool. Expectations are that Trinamool’s influence will be evident in this election.
Who does the most powerful Catholic Church in Goa support? Is to be known. Will Trinamool be on the side? No statement has yet been made on whether he will support Congress.
