Congress says open to post-poll alliance with non-BJP parties in Goa

With the date for the Goa Assembly election results nearing, the Congress has said it is open to a post-poll alliance with parties other than the BJP to form the next government if it does not get a majority on its own, PTI reported.

Elections to the 40-member Goa Assembly were held on February 14 and the results would be declared on March 10.

All India Congress Committee’s Goa desk in-charge Dinesh Gundu Rao told reporters on Sunday if his party falls short of the majority mark of 21, it is open to seeking the support of outfits like the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP), the Maharashtrawadi Gomantak Party (MGP) and the Trinamool Congress (TMC) to form the government.

Rao said after the final result is out, the Congress Legislature Party will waste no time in electing its leader. If Congress gets a majority, “we will stake claim to form the government the same day”, he said.
