Former chief minister Ravi Naik is a veteran of Goa's political scene, having been a chief minister between 1991 and 1993, and again in April 1994 for just six days. A politician who started off with the Maharashtrawadi Gomantak Party, he moved to the Congress, then BJP, and back to the Congress, before joining the BJP again. He is a prominent face of the politically-significant Bhandari Samaj (OBCs). Naik, who even tried to launch his two sons Riteish and Roy into politics, has once again decided to contest from Ponda. As a home minister under former chief minister Digambar Kamat, Naik courted controversy over his role in the handling of the death case of British teenager Scarlett Keeling who was found dead on Anjuna beach.
