Goa Polls: Congress will announce candidates list soon

After tie-up with NCP for poll bound Goa, Congress is likely to announce its candidates for the state in a day or two. The Congress is contesting 33 seats in the 40-member state Assembly while NCP will field its candidates from seven. A meeting of the Central Election Committee of the Congress was held on Tuesday to finalize candidates for the state.

The seat adjustment between the two parties in Goa could be reached only after much wrangling a few days back, while Maharashtrawadi Gomantak Party (MGP), which was supporting the ruling alliance in Goa on Tuesday decided to withdraw from the Congress-led government ahead of Assembly polls on March 3.
