 Fadnavis will visit Goa after Anant Chaturdashi. 

BJP's new election in charge, former Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis, will visit Goa after Anant Chaturdashi. Currently, there are many aspirants for the BJP candidature in one constituency and the party is facing a big issue. 

Fadnavis is considered to be a close associate of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Union Home Minister Amit Shah and the appointment of Fadnavis indirectly hands the reigns of Goa politics to leaders in Delhi. Even in the last elections, BJP's high command decided to intervene and make some changes. However,  the local leaders decide not to move forward with those changes. As a result, the BJP won only 13 seats.

Most of the cabinet members, including the chief minister, were defeated in the last election which has forced the BJP to not decide candidature based on sentiment to avoid the results of the past elections.

Therefore, this year the possibility of shocking recommendations in some constituencies cannot be ruled out.

The BJP had surveyed the weak links and strengths and potential candidates in each constituency at the national and state levels, and its report is being prepared. 

The first phase of the report will determine which current MLAs will be given party ticket and where, with a little emphasis, the BJP can win and where there is a real need to change candidates. A comparative study has also been done on possible new faces in the BJP.

As Fadnavis has also done political work in Goa before, he has gathered a lot of information about the overall political situation of the BJP from his sources over the past week.

Based on all this information, he will hold a meeting with BJP's core committee and key members of the state in Panaji. 

Sadanand Shet Tanawade, State President also talked about Fadnavis' management as a leader during the Bihar elections. He said, "Devendra Fadnavis has done excellent election management in Bihar. From now on, his vote will be important in important decisions."
