The results of the Goa Assembly elections are out and BJP has emerged as the single largest party in the state. BJP has got maximum 20 seats. But the party has not been able to reach the majority mark. The majority figure in Goa is 21.
After the declaration of the results, Goa BJP President Sadanand Shet Tanawade has made a big claim. According to him, three independent MLAs have given support to BJP and with this the total number of seats of BJP has crossed the majority mark.
Protest against support from MGP
However, there are reports of differences between the claims of BJP government formation. In Goa, BJP MLA and former Chief Minister Ravi Naik has registered his protest in the party for taking the support of Maharashtra Gomantak Party (MGP) for the formation of power.
Let us tell you that two MLAs of MGP party have won the Goa Assembly elections. The names of the winning MLAs are Sudin Dhavalikar and Jeet Arolkar. The MGP had an alliance with the Trinamool Congress in the Goa elections. After the results of the Goa assembly elections, MGP has submitted its letter of support to the BJP.
This is the result of Goa
BJP has secured maximum 20 seats, while Congress has got 11, Aam Aadmi Party 2, Goa Forward Party 1, Maharashtrawadi Gomantak 2, Revolutionary Goans Party 1 and Independent candidates 3 seats. There are a total of 40 assembly seats in the state and the majority figure is 21. If BJP gets the support of independent candidates, then it will form the government in the state with an absolute majority.
