Panjim opts for Babush over Parrikar’s legacy

Panjim: The voters of Panjim have opted to elect Atanasio (Babush) Monseratte from the Panjim constituency that was the Late Manohar Parrikar’s stronghold constituency.

BJP candidate Siddharth Kunkolienkar – a prodigy of the Late Manohar Parrikar – who relinquished his seat to allow for Parrikar to come back to Goa as Chief Minister from the Union Defence Minister position fell short of capturing the hearts of the Panjim voter and neither did people of Panjim support the legacy of Parrikar to assist the BJP in retaining this North Goa bastion.

Speaking to GoaChronicle.com, Monseratte thanked the voters for supporting him and expressed his firm desire to develop Panjim into a constituency that the people of Goa would be proud off.

Babush Monseratte polled 8748, Siddharth Kunkolienkar polled 6990 and AAP candidate Valmiki Naik lost his deposit polling only 436 and former RSS leader Subhash Velingkar from Goa who broke-off to start GSM polled 560 votes; he too has lost his deposit.
