Chief Minister Pramod Sawant on Monday said, Late Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar's son Utpal, who is contesting as an independent candidate, will not win the Assembly election from Panaji.

On being asked to respond to comments made by Congress candidate Michael Lobo that his party would be talking to Utpal Parrikar for a post-poll alliance, Sawant said: "Utpal will not win and Michael will not win. The BJP will win. There is no one will need to speak anyone because the BJP is winning by a majority."

Utpal is contesting against Atanasio Monserrate from the BJP for the Panaji Assembly seat, which his father Manohar Parrikar represented without losing since 1994.

Sawant said that he would win the Sanquelim Assembly seat with a margin of 4,000 votes, while adding tha the BJP would win an overall majority.

"We are contesting 40 seats and we are confident that with the kind of work we have done, we will form a government with a full majority. I will win Sanquelim with a 4,000 lead," he added.
