"We can have differences of opinion but that does not mean we need to deviate from the core issue of India's development," PM Modi said.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi is addressing a public meeting in Panaji, Goa. The party has announced 36 candidates and decided to extend support to 4 others in 40 seat Goa Assembly. The saffron party had fought 2012 Assembly elections with Maharashtrawadi Gomantak Party (MGP), winning majority of seats. However, following a controversy involving RSS’ former state president Subhash Velingkar, MGP broke ties with BJP. This will be PM Modi’s first visit to Goa for election campaign. While party workers have estimates a crowd of at least 50,000 for PM Modi’s rally, a fair crowd of 15,000-20,000 is expected by district officials. PM’s addressed the rally at Panaji, a constituency that has elected a BJP MLA in for the last five Assembly elections – Manohar Parrikar.
