BJP falls short of 1 in North, alliance has 13 in South

GOANEWS DESK, PANAJI | 20 March 2015 21:33 IST

The ruling Bharatiya Janata Party is confident of coming to power at Zilla Panchayats in both the districts in spite of the debacle.

With both the districts divided into 25 seats each, the BJP is falling short of only one seat in North Goa while the ruling alliance of the BJP-MGP-GVP in the South Goa is having exactly 13 seats in hands.

“We are forming our ruling groups at both the ZPs”, chief minister Laxmikant Parsekar told the media today evening.

The BJP in the South has won 11 seats with rest of the seats being divided between the Congress (5), Babush Monseratte (3 including Jennifer’s Taleigao), Rohan Khaunte & Naresh Sawal (3) and 3 other independents.

Babush had supported the BJP in City Corporation of Panaji to make the Mayor of the ruling party while the post of deputy mayor has been given to his group.

“I have friends in all the parties. I will decide whom to support when time comes”, Babush told the media, however, in case of the ZP.

Parsekar, on the other hand, is claiming that several independents have started approaching him with the support.

In the South Goa, the BJP has won only 7 seats while 4 are won by the Maharashtrawadi Gomantak Party and 2 by Mickky Pacheco’s Goa Vikas Party.

“That makes 13, enough to form our own group”, said Parsekar.

The Congress, through its independent candidates, has won only 4 seats while 8 more are independents.

The rough break-up is as follows:
