Goa Assembly Elections 2022: NCP will not forge alliance with Congress in Goa

The NCP on Tuesday said that the party will not forge an alliance with the Congress for the upcoming assembly elections in Goa. NCP said that it will fight the elections together with Shiv Sena. This will be the first time that NCP and Shiv Sena will contest elections together in Goa.

NCP’s Praful Patel and Shiv Sena’s Sanjay Raut are currently in Goa to finalize the alliance. By holding a meeting, both the parties can announce who will contest elections together on how many seats.

Actually, there was an idea to repeat the Maharashtra alliance experiment in Goa, but the Congress probably refused to do so, which the NCP confirmed on Tuesday. NCP leader Patel said, ‘Congress says that they can win elections in Goa on their own but can’t get a single seat.’

It is noteworthy that NCP leader and minister in Maharashtra government Nawab Malik had said on Monday that we wanted to contest elections in Goa with Congress but due to some local leaders the alliance could not be done. On January 18, our general secretary and a minister will go to Goa to talk about the alliance. But now the NCP has announced that it will not forge an alliance with the Congress in Goa.
