Panaji (Goa) [India], March 10: As the BJP has won 19 seats and is leading in 1 in the 40-member assembly in Goa, BJP leader and Goa election in-charge Devendra Fadnavis on Thursday said Goans have shown faith in Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
"The people of Goa have given us a clear majority. We will get 20 seats or even 1-2 seats more. People have shown faith in PM Modi," said Fadnavis.
Exuding confidence in forming a BJP government in Goa, Fadnavis said Maharashtrawadi Gomantak Party (MGP) would also be allying with BJP in Goa along with other Independent candidates.
"Independent candidates are coming with us. MGP is also coming with us and taking all together, we will form our government", BJP leader Devendra Fadnavis.
Predictions were made for a hung assembly in Goa due to a multi-cornered contest with parties, including the BJP, Congress, Trinamool Congress, and AAP.
In 2017, Congress had emerged as the single largest party in the state, winning 17 seats, but the BJP, which won 13 seats, managed to form the government with the support of the Goa Forward Party and the MGP, which had won three seats each, and two independents. (ANI)
