PANJIM: Party's election in-charge Devendra Fadnavis has said that BJP Goa is capable to fight polls solo but its doors are open for alliance. He was replying to a media query regarding reported alliance with MGP.
"We are ready to fight the 2022 assembly elections on our own strength. No formal discussions have started regarding alliance with MGP nor have any proposal come to us. Our doors are open for alliance. We are not a closed door party. But I would also State that we are prepared to fight the elections on our own strength,” he said.
MGP President Deepak Dhavalikar has denied alliance claiming the regional party has started preparations for the upcoming polls independently.
Fadnavis and MGP's Sudin Dhavalikar's meeting in Mumbai had fuelled speculations about alliance of BJP-MGP. Chief Minister Dr Pramod Sawant thereafter said that both he and Sudin will be elected to the Assembly in the next term but whether they'll be in the same government or not will be decided after talks.
