If the BJP captured Goa’s political space left unattended by the Congress in 2017 after the polls, the Trinamool Congress became the early bird this time around, months before the state’s elections.
He said the entry of new political parties in the state was discussed during the recent visit of Union home minister and senior BJP leader Amit Shah here.
He said the "double engine" of BJP governments - in Goa and at the Centre - would help in the development of the state.
In the previous assembly elections, the party had dropped 15-20 per cent of its sitting MLAs.
A delegation, comprising Goa Congress President Girish Chodankar, Goa Congress Working President Aleixo Sequeira and Leader of Opposition Digambar Kamat met the governor to submit a memorandum.
Atishi said the people of Goa now know that voting for Congress is a vote for the BJP as MLAs from the former would cross over to the ruling outfit.
