Panaji: Maharashtrawadi Gomantak Party (MGP) on Monday announced that they would be contesting upcoming Goa polls in alliance with Trinamool Congress Party.
Addressing a press conference, MGP President Deepak Dhavalikar said that the central committee of MGP resolved to have alliance with the TMC.
He said that the details like who would be chief ministerial face would be worked out later.
Dhavalikar said that both the parties have joined hands to give good governance to the people.
“There is a wave against BJP. People want a change and we will be able to form the government in the state,” he said.
Dhavalikar said that the impression was being created that MGP do not have any option other than the BJP. “We have been always criticizing BJP. We were in talks with all other parties like AAP, Congress and TMC except BJP,” he said.
The MGP chief said that 60 per cent of the people are yet to decide whom to vote, and hence this option has been provided to them.
Dhavalikar said that the MGP can contest the election on its own but considering the current political scenario it was decided to go for pre-poll alliance.
MGP, which had won on three seats for 2017 Goa polls, is currently left with the lone MLA after two of its legislators joined BJP.
