Goa assembly elections 2022: In talks with Congress and Trinamool for alliance, says Sharad Pawar

NEW DELHI: Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) chief Sharad Pawar on Tuesday said that his party is in talks with the Trinamool Congress and the Congress for an alliance in Goa.
Polling will be held for 40 assembly seats in Goa on February 14.
The assembly elections this year in Goa is likely to be multi-cornered with both the Trinamool Congress and Arvind Kejriwal’s Aam Aadmi Party throwing their hat in the ring.
The Congress, which had emerged as the single largest party in 2017 assembly elections with 17 seats, has been pushed to the margins as the party has lost as many as 15 MLAs to other parties.
It will be interesting to see what the Congress decides about the proposed coalition after the Trinamool Congress poached several of its leaders in the state.
The Congress had on Monday categorically denied talks of any alliance with the Trinamool Congress.
Senior Congress leader K C Venugopal had tweeted: “The rumour in circulation that a possible alliance with TMC was discussed by Shri @RahulGandhi in today’s meeting is completely baseless & untrue. Let me assure that the Congress party is confident- we will put Goa back on the path to progress soon.”
The Trinamool on its part has also softened its stand about joining hands with the Congress in the state.
