After stunning show in Delhi, AAP eyes on Goa's LS seats

The AAP's local convener Rajeshree Nagashekar said that they were seriously considering contesting the parliamentary election.

The AAP was for the locals and showed that ordinary people could win the elections, according to Dinesh Waghela from the national council of the party.

However, the party admitted that there was no decision on the structure of the party in Goa which comprised around 1,000 volunteers in the state.

Meanwhile, Goa chief minister Manohar Parrikar described the just-concluded assembly elections as 'a semi-final of the LokSabha elections' with the results in the four states showing that the NDA would come to power at the Centre. Describing the BJP’s victory and Congress’ loss alongside the AAP’s spectacular debut as highlighting the anger of the people, Parrikar said these elections were a warning sign to all political parties.

'The results of these elections are a clear signal to all political parties, including the BJP that people want to clear the air in politics and seek corruption-free, nepotism-free and dynasty-free politics,' he said while urging for political parties to learn a lesson from this.

Goa Pradesh Congress Committee office-bearer Subhash Shirodkar stated that the party has accepted the mandate of the people, and will introspect and work towards the forthcoming parliamentary elections.
