Campaign trail with Goa CM Sawant; How BJP is eyeing a thumping return here

Goa chief minister Pramod Sawant is eyeing to retain the predominantly Hindu Sanquelim seat. Sawant has won from Sanquelim constituency in 2012 & 2017 assembly elections. Prior to his victory in 2012, Sanquelim was a congress stronghold. Before that, the Maharashtrawadi Gomantak party held sway in the area. In 2012, Sawant defeated the Cong’s Pratap Gauns by nearly 7,000 votes on an anti-incumbency wave against Congress. The chief minister is banking on an active network of BJP workers to mobilise voters in the region.
