Panaji: Babush Monserratte wanted to contest upcoming Panaji by-election on BJP ticket, but was denied the same, after which he opted for congress ticket, BJP President Vinay Tendulkar revealed today.

During a press conference, Tendulkar said that Babush had approached BJP soon after Panaji elections were announced (April 9).
