Will BJP be thrice lucky in Goa ?

Goa: The counting of votes for the February 14 assembly elections in Goa started this morning. The ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) in the state is trying to come to power for the third time in a row, while the opposition Congress is hopeful of a clear mandate in its favor this time. Goa saw a multi-cornered contest, with 302 candidates contesting for 40 assembly seats in Goa due to the presence of two major political parties, the BJP and the Congress, as well as several smaller and regional outfits.

Election officials said the counting of votes would take place at two places. Counting of votes will be held for the assembly constituencies falling in North Goa district and South Goa district respectively at Damodar College in Margao and Government Polytechnic College in Altinho, Panaji.

Most of the exit polls have projected a fractured mandate in Goa, forcing political parties to plan their strategy keeping in mind the post-counting situation.
Senior Congress leader P Chidambaram held a meeting on Wednesday night with his party’s candidates and candidates of ally GFP in the Goa Assembly elections. In this it was decided that soon after the election results are out, the coalition will decide the name of its leader and stake claim to form the government. Sources gave this information.
