The BJP on Tuesday said the party got "less seats than it hoped for" in the Goa assembly elections.

"We had appealed to the voters of Goa for a complete mandate but we did not get it," senior party leader Rajiv Pratap Rudy told PTI.

BJP leader and chief ministerial candidate Manohar Parrikar, who won the Panjim seat, said that he was happy with his victory and credited it to the fact that no one could challenge him when it came to promoting development in the state.

Congress-NCP combine bagged 19 seats in the 40-member Goa assembly, while BJP secured 14 seats.
