Panaji: Congress on Monday claimed that it would win 23 to 25 seats out of the 37 seats it contested in the recently-held Goa assembly elections. “Despite dirty tricks played by BJP, which includes pouring crores of rupees to get the votes, people have voted for the Congress party,” Goa Pradesh Congress Committee (GPCC) president Luizinho Faleiro told reporters yesterday.
He alleged that the ruling BJP tried different tricks, including division of votes through proxy candidates, but the voters did not fall prey to them.
Faleiro, who himself contested elections from Navelim constituency, predicted that the party will win 23-25 seats.
Around 82 per cent voter turnout was recorded in the Goa assembly elections held on February 4. —PTI
