Paliencar, who was closeted with his supporters at his residence, said “No matter how many candidates are in the fray, I will emerge as the winner. I was elected based on my development work. We will have to think differently for the Siolim seat. Let anyone contest, we wish good luck."

He further said he would wait for two days to decide on which party's ticket he would contest or run as an independent.
