Congress President Sonia Gandhi on Panaji called Goa Chief Minister Digamber Kamat to congratulate him for the party's victory in Mormugao Lok Sabha bypoll.
"Just now I got a call from Sonia Gandhi congratulating me for the victory. This is a victory of all the party workers who worked overtime," Kamat told mediapersons outside the counting station in Margao town on Saturday.
Refuting the BJP's allegation that the low voters turn out showed people's no confidence in the state government, the chief minister on Saturday said that the victory has proved that the Goan voters are with them.
Kamat also lauded its alliance partner Nationalistic Congress Party (NCP) for their share in the campaigning. "NCP leaders campaigned with us throughout, which anointed our victory," he said.
Though he did not comment directly on other two alliance partners -- Save Goa Front (SGF) and Maharashtrawadi Gomantak Party (MGP) who had declared their support to the Congress candidate.
"I presume everyone worked for us and that is why the Congress got victorious," he mentioned.
