Elections to the two parliamentary seats in the coastal state will be held on May 7.

“I filed my nomination today on behalf of the farmers, fishermen, taxi operators and common man who have been harassed by the BJP-led government,” Fernandes said later.
Unemployment is one of the major issues due to the wrong policies of the central government, he said.
Fernandes added that if he gets elected, he will raise crucial issues like diversion of Mhadei river by Karnataka, unemployment, financial crisis in the state, resumption of mining on immediate basis in the Parliament.
Talking to reporters, GPCC chief Patkar said, “I am sure that both the candidates would become the voice of Goa in Parliament.” Leader of Opposition Yuri Alemao said the Congress-nominated INDIA bloc candidates filed their nominations on behalf of educated unemployed, mining dependents, environmentalists, social activists, women, senior citizens, persons with disabilities.
