BJP’s Manohar Parrikar says the party will stake claim if it manages to get enough support. “We are not trying to pass on the buck, we are all responsible for a fractured mandate,” he said.
Congress wins 17 seats, BJP 13 after results for all 40 seats in Goa were declared.
The results in Goa were more disappointing for the AAP. It failed to win a single seat in a house of 40, with even its chief ministerial candidate Elvis Gomes losing. The former bureaucrat lost from Cuncolim, signalling a massive let down for the party that was looking to give itself an electoral boost before the next round of assembly elections in Gujarat and Himachal Pradesh.
