BJP targeting 27, without negatives votes

GOANEWS DESK, PANAJI | 10 April 2016 18:21 IST

The ruling Bharatiya Janata Party has flexed its muscles for the forthcoming Assembly election, targeting 27 seats.

The target was set by Chief Minister Laxmikant Parsekar today at the state executive meeting, including the constituency level Mandal presidents, held in the capital city.

In order to achieve it, the BJP is starting Ghar Chalo Abhiyan in May, before which it would complete the constituency level meetings by 5th May.

And a very important message given by the CM to its party cadres:

“We achieved 21 seats in last election on the basis of negative voting because people were fed up of the Congress rule. But this time we have to achieve 27 on positive grounds, the work BJP government has done till date.”

The ruling party is thus planning to pose before the people the positive work it has done not only in the last four years but also the BJP rule earlier, in 2000.


“We have to convince the people that BJP is a party with a difference and what it has delivered in all the fields of human life”, said Parsekar in his address.

He also took a brief review of the performance of the BJP government, during the tenures of Manohar Parrikar and him, in the social, economic and cultural sectors.

“BJP’s graph has always been rising since 1994, the year we entered the Goa Assembly”, said Parsekar.

In reality, the graph has been 4 seats in 1994, 10 seats in 1999, 17 seats in 2002, 14 seats in 2007 and 21 seats in 2012.

BJP state president Vinay Tendulkar later told the media that the whole party structure would be geared up from now onwards, targeting forthcoming Assembly election. is now on Telegram & also Youtube. Kindly subscribe for free & remain updated.
