AAP to contest in Goa for Assembly Polls

The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) on Thursday said it will contest by-polls to all the three Goa Assembly seats scheduled next month.
AAP Goa general secretary Pradeep Padgaonkar told PTI that the party was in the process of shortlisting its candidates for Shiroda, Mandrem, and Mapusa seats, where by-elections will be held along with the Lok Sabha polls in the state on April 23.
The by-polls to Shiroda and Mandrem were necessitated after the sitting Congress MLAs resigned from the Assembly and party and joined the BJP.
The Mapusa seat fell vacant due to the death of sitting BJP MLA Francis D'Souza
Padgaonkar claimed his party will win all the three seats as it has a strong base there.
