PANJIM: Architect Nandan Sawant will be the Goa Suraksha Manch candidate for the North Goa seat, the party announced on Friday.
Former Goa RSS chief Subhash Velingkar said his political outfit will contest both the Lok Sabha seats in the State and will not support the BJP.
The Goa Suraksha Manch (GSM) head also said that if elected, his party MPs would support Narendra Modi as the prime minister at the Centre.
"Nandan Sawant is our candidate from North Goa. We will be fielding our candidates in both the Lok Sabha seats in Goa. The name of the other candidate will be announced soon but if we win, our MPs will support Modi as the prime minister," Velingkar told reporters.
He, however, said his outfit will not support BJP Lok Sabha candidates in Goa as the saffron party's local leadership has "miserably failed" to take up the State's issues with the Centre.
Further, Velingkar has opined that the current dispensation in Goa will not complete its three-year term.
“We are 1000 per cent confident the government will not complete three years and dissolution is inevitable before or after Lok Sabha polls,” he said.
He also opined that the GSM is already a cognizable force in Goa and would come to power in Goa within next 5 years.
