Mahayuti formed in Goa

The ruling BJP is likely to face a tough battle for ballot in the state as its erstwhile partner in the government, Maharashtrawadi Gomantak Party (MGP), joined hands with Goa Suraksha Manch (GSM), the breakaway RSS faction of Subhash Velingkar, and Shiv Sena to form a grand alliance, Mahayuti.

MGP senior functionary Ramkrishna `Sudin' Dhavalikar was announced as its CM candidate. Dhavalikar said the pre-poll alliance was “to save culture and language in the state“ and was confident of coming to power with an absolute majority . Goa will cast its vote for 40 seats on February 4.

With the announcement of Mahayuti, BJP will face strong challenge in north Goa constituencies where saffron party had an edge over the others.
