VASCO: Mormugao taluka, a BJP’s strong castle, witnessed tremors on Thursday’s election result. BJP faced defeat in Mormugao and Cortalim constituency. BJP managed to retain its Vasco and Dabolim seat comfortably.
Silent voting has happened, and silent votes have considerably changed the election results. The three times MLA and two times BJP minister Milind Naik was defeated by his arch-rival Congress party candidate Sankalp Amonkar in Mormugao.
In the Vasco constituency, too, BJP candidate Daji Salkar managed to defeat Congress candidate of Vasco Carlos Almeida, who was also two times BJP MLA of Vasco.
There was a tough fight between Congress party candidate Viriato Fernandes and BJP’s Mauvin Godinho in the Dabolim constituency. But at last, Godinho emerged victorious in the Dabolim constituency.
In the Cortalim constituency, there was a tough fight between the two independent candidates, Girish Pillai, who Godinho and Antonio Vas backed. But Antonio was won the Cortalim seat. There are chances that he may lend his support to BJP if BJP forms the government.
