“We will also win the Cuncolim constituency,” he says.
Sawant taking a potshot at the Congress Margao candidate Digambar Kamat stated that “Kamat was asking where are acche dins?, then he must see the human development and work done by the BJP in its tenure”.
Sawant also took on Goa Forward Party supremo Vijai Sardesai and challenged him to reveal who had changed the zone of Kabrastan at Sonsoddo area and should tell people.
“Who has done the politics over the bus stand, garbage, Karastan issues? He should tell,” CM said.

Margao BJP Candidate Manohar (Babu) Azgaonkar said that “there has been no development seen in Margao constituency in many years.
“There is a need for the people from all communities to get together in Margao. People from Margao seem to have accepted me, and I am privileged to get a chance to serve the people of Margao,” he said.
He further said that he wants to develop Margao like the Pernem constituency.
“Margao has several problems such as garbage, bus stand, poor market, district hospital, etc. Even the cultural events are taking place in Fatorda and not in Margao. In fact, Margao is a place of businessmen, and much of the revenue is generated and given by the businessmen from Margao,” he says.
Azgaonkar further assured that every issue in his manifesto would be completed. Margao will certainly have a BJP seat this time. We will surely get 24 seats. “We have a government at the centre, and to initiate the further development, it is necessary to get BJP seats,” he added.
Damu Naik, Fatorda BJP candidate, said that our slogan for this assembly election, “in 2022, seat 22,” is actually what we are eyeing for the absolute majority this time. If we get an absolute majority, then the double engine govt will bring development.
Naik further said that the Dr Pramod Sawant government and the Central government are pulling Goa’s economy. “To bring development, we need a stable government. Oppositions are talking tall about Goa’s development, but we need to analyse what they have done in the past,” he added.
