Live Press conference was going on at 8.20pm with Sudin, Vijay etc
Vijay says there will be no compromise on Goemkar and Goemkarponn issues
Check what Vijay Sardesai has to say..
We in GF contested only 4 seats.. we have won 3 seats..
We cannot waste this mandate by being oblivious to the choices we have in formation of Stable govt that will ensure development of the state. Our mantra is Goem Goemkar Goemkarponn, this slogan given us these 3 seats.. We will never make any compromise on these issues on Goy Goemkar Goemkarponn. But at the same time, to take this forward, we believe the need for stable govt, a Govt that will ensure development, a Govt that will have co-operation with the centre which has been committed to us by Mr Nitin Gadkari specially the gov has sanction thousands of crore rupees in development works in the State of Goa in the last 2 years. We look forward to this type of development in our constituencies first and also in the rest of Goa and I believe in the development and protecting the interest of Sons of the soil, we take Goa Forward and we feel that the person best capable to do it with his experience and clear image is Mr. Manohar Parrikar. There we made a demand that the legislature party of the BJP should be lead by and Chief Minister should be Manohar Parrikar and we are happy to be in this coalition. But we also like to reassure every Goan that we will be watch dogs for Goemkarponn.. One’s political life there are some hard choices to make , with these choices we made we will not betray the cause of Goem Goemkar Goemkarponn. Eventually, the people who will not be comfortable with the choices we taken now.. Eventually everybody will be happy and Goa will go forward. Thank you
It should be Cong who should have gone to Governor first but it looks like they are struggling to choose their own leader as there may be too many claimants including ex Ministers etc
Letters of support with Governor's Invitation to form Govt

With this written support already, Congress will now left with only two which will make their total (17+2) 19 only. I guess Congress lost the opportunity to form Govt for which they are only to blame.
They knew very well that Parrikar said they will stake claim soon after the results declared..
New Govt formula or pattern to include Cabinet berths to all 3 GF MLAs, 2 to MGP and one each to Rohan and Govind

No mobiles were allowed inside counting hall, there were notices too on all gates but they were repeatedly making annoucement on mike requesting and reminding about it which could mean there were some using phones inside the counting hall?
It was said that all results will be out by 11am, then they said by 12noon. Votes counting stated 8am. We arrived there at 9am, not a single result was out.
1. Mandrem (Parsekar/Sopte), the first constituency to take up for counting
