GOA ASSEMBLY ELECTION 2022: CONSTITUENCIES]
The Congress, the AAP, and the Trinamool Congress-MGP combine were among the challengers to the ruling BJP.
In 2017 Goa assembly polls, the Congress had won 17 seats, becoming the single-largest party. The BJP had won 13 seats. However, defections turned tables in the favour of the BJP later. This time, the Congress made its candidates take an oath of loyalty.
For the first time in two decades, the BJP contested the Goa polls without Manohar Parrikar who died in 2019. His son Utpal Parrikar contested from Panjim, after he was denied ticket by the BJP, and the opposition parties had latched on to the issue.
Margao witnessed another interesting poll battle between former chief minister Digambar Kamat and state minister Manohar Ajagaonkar.
Goa poll results were declared on March 10.
