Post-poll survey: honours for BJP even in Goa

Ever since the previous Assembly election, Goa has been in the news over questions of the BJP’s political strength. Though the popular State leader Manohar Parrikar returned to Goa and attempted to give a semblance of stability to the party-led government, the Lok Sabha election held after his death has thrown up a possible challenge to the party.
While BJP candidate Shripad Naik won the north Goa (Panaji) seat for the fifth consecutive time, Congress candidate Francisco Sardinha wrested the south Goa (Marmugao) seat from the BJP by a slim margin of 9,755 votes. Mr. Naik’s victory margin shrunk from over 1 lakh votes to 80,000. The BJP secured 51.2% of the total votes, which is a loss of two percentage points from the 2014 share. The Congress vote share went up significantly from 36.6% last time to 42.9% this time.
