Meanwhile, the All India Congress Committee (AICC) secretary in charge of the Goa, Dinesh Gundu Rao said on Monday, "(We are) in discussion with NCP, MGP, Goa Forward. They are in discussion with us. All of them are feeling that this BJP government has to go. But ultimately an alliance requires proper alignment, but that has to play out properly."
In the run-up to the 2017 state Assembly polls, the grand old party had a loose understanding with several independent candidates who eventually supported the BJP thatr formed the government.
