A day after Trinamool Congress Party's Goa desk in-charge Mahua Moitra suggested that TMC was open to a pre-poll alliance with the Goa Forward Party (GFP) and Congress, Senior Congress leader P Chidambaram on Saturday, Janaury 8, said that Congress is ready to accept the support of any party that is keen to defeat the BJP in the upcoming Goa Assembly elections.

"I have read the TMC's statement on alliance in the newspaper today, let's wait for the official word," the former Union minister told reporters here.

The former union minister said that the Congress is capable of defeating the BJP on its own, but "if any party wants to support the Congress to defeat the BJP, why should I say no?"

Moitra had tweeted that the TMC will do "everything possible to defeat BJP" and tagged GFP and Congress.

The Congress has already announced its pre-poll alliance with the GFP, while the MGP and the TMC have formed their own alliance for elections to the 40-member assembly.

The election to the 40-member Goa assembly will happen on Febuary 15. Results will be announced on March 10.
