BJP’s Alina elected unopposed to Cortalim seat

In shocking development over the by-poll for the Cortalim seat, BJP candidate Alina Saldanha has been elected unopposed as Congress candidate Raymond De Sa and Independent candidate Ramakant Borkar withdrew from the race.

The stand of the Congress candidate has left the local and national leaders in a lurch as the party was looking at putting up a good fight to retain the seat; which was open on account of the sudden demise of the BJP minister Matany Saldanha.

The BJP now becomes a 21 member MLA group of the current coalition government with MGP, GVP and two independents.
