The election in this constituency has been necessitated after death of then Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar, who died on March 17, 2019.

Two time Panaji MLA, Kunkolienkar, first went to Mahalaxmi Temple to seek  Blessings of Goddess before filing the nomination form. Chief Minister Pramod Sawant, BJP Goa President Vinay Tendulkar besides other party leaders accompanied Kunkolienkar when he filed the nomination.

Addressing workers, Sawant said  “contest is between a candidate with character and another whose character is questionable.”

The chief minister was apparently referring to Congress candidate Atanasio Monserratte who was booked in the year 2015 for raping minor girl and also for human trafficking.

Sawant said that people of Panaji would vote for BJP and the party will retain the seat, which they have been wrestling for last 25 years.
