Panaji: The Congress Party on Saturday is ready to accept support of any party that is intending to defeat BJP in Goa during upcoming polls, a senior party leader P Chidambaram said.
Chidambaram’s statement comes minutes after TMC Goa desk in-charge Mahua Moitra said that her party is open for pre-poll alliance with Goa Forward Party and the Congress.
“I have read TMC’s statement on alliance in the newspaper today, let’s wait for the official word,” Chidambaram said talking to reporters.
He said that Congress is capable of defeating BJP on its own but “if any party wants to support Congress to defeat BJP, why should I say no.”
“Let us see what official offer is,” Chidambaram added.
Congress has already announced its pre-poll alliance with Goa Forward Party while TMC has a tie up with Maharashtrawadi Gomantak Party.
