On being questioned during the launch of the GVP manifesto, Pacheco said, “I wanted for UGDP and GVP to combine more effectively. All our efforts to work on that have not reached the desired results. But our alliance is on in this format. In some constituencies we are together and in some we will have friendly fights.
Cortalim GVP candidate, Nelly Rodrigues, expressed her disappointment in the fact that UGDP had betrayed her and GVP, when it came to the Cortalim seat and put up their own candidate. But she also added that the UGDP candidate did not deter her chances at the polls.
With the GVP-UGDP alliance to formal continues to remain in a tail-spin, it will be left to be seen, whether the end up working for the benefit of each other or against each other.
