“We discussed the management of the election during the meeting. I am confident that we will win both seats of Goa this time,” Joshi said.

Shripad Naik said that all the leaders discussed about the election management. “We are expecting maximum margin and hence in that direction we discussed giving responsibilities to our karykartas,” Naik, current MP from North Goa, said.
