    Panaji:

    Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) chief Sharad Pawar on Wednesday said his party intends to fight the 2022 Goa Legislative Assembly elections in alliance with the Congress and other like-minded parties.

    Mr Pawar said the NCP wants to fight the Goa Legislative Assembly elections “as a front” along with other parties to provide an alternative to the BJP.

    “In Goa, we want to contest the election in alliance with the Congress and other like-minded parties, but we are yet to start dialogues with other political outfits,” the NCP chief said.

    Mr Pawar met the local NCP leadership including the party’s state unit president Jose Philip D’Souza and Churchill Alemao, the party’s lone MLA in the Assembly.

    “The discussion about the alliance and seat sharing amongst partners will happen at the national level,” he said, adding that discussions will begin six months before the election date.
