‘Family Raj’ in Goa elections; 5 power couples testing their electoral luck
Five couples are trying their electoral luck in Goa Assembly polls, aiming for 25% of the coastal state’s 40 seats. Michael Lobo, a former minister in the Pramod Sawant-led BJP government in Goa started raising the pitch for his wife.

Trinamool Congress, the new entrant to Goan politics, has also fielded a couple. Goa’s Deputy CM Chandrakant Kavlekar yet again bagged a ticket from BJP on his traditional Quepem seat but his wife Savitri will contest as an independent. Watch the full video for more.
