VASCO: Three prominent aspirant candidates from Mormugao Constituency withdrew nominations in Mormugao constituency on Tuesday extending unconditional support to GPCC Vice President Sankalp Amonkar .
Amonkar speaking to media said that he will now declare his official panel of candidates in Mormugao constituency on Wednesday.
Amonkar further said that though the procedure for the election was wrong, he had placed candidates in all the 9 wards of Mormugao Constituency to contest the upcoming polls.
Amonkar said that in some wards, some of Sankalp Amonkars well wishers and supporters for many years had also filed for nominations and that could lead to splitting of votes and hence some supporters had decided to withdraw nominations and extend full support to Amonkar to unitedly fight the upcoming elections.
Amonkar said that hard-core supporters Sameer Khan ( ward 7) ,Umesh Mandrekar ( ward no 3 ) and Sarvesh Hoble ( Ward no 5 ) had withdrawn nominations in favour of Amonkar.
