Panaji: BJP will fight upcoming Goa Legislative Assembly election under the leadership of Chief Minister Pramod Sawant, a senior party functionary said.
BJP State President Sadanand Shet Tanavade told “Hub Encounter” on Tuesday that the party would contest 2022 Goa Legislative Assembly Elections under the leadership of Pramod Sawant.
He said that the party would project Sawant as the next Chief Minister of the state when it will go for campaigning.
Tanavade said that the BJP is in a position to contest Assembly election on its own in all the 40 constituencies. When asked about possibility of pre-poll alliance, the BJP leader said the issues about the alliance should not be discussed at this point of time.
He said that the party’s government in the state and also in the centre has worked for the development of the state, due to which it will be able to retain the power even after next election.
“The results of recently held Zilla Panchayat election where party won in North and South District reflects that the voters are with us,” he said adding that 80 per cent of the total voters had exercised their franchise for the Zilla Panchayat election.
Tanavade, however, said that the party is not in favour of contesting upcoming municipal council elections on the party line as it would create division amongst the cadres.
