BJP wins both seats in Goa by-poll

The BJP in Goa on Monday won the Panaji and Valpoi seats in the assembly bypolls, with Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar claiming that the two comfortable victories had not only strengthened his government but were also a popular endorsement of the move to snatch power from the numerically superior Congress.

Parrikar won with a margin of 4,803 votes, defeating his nearest rival Congress’ Girish Chodankar.
