Assembly, the Chief Minister expressed confidence that BJP will win both the Lok Sabha seats and the three bypolls - Mandrem, Mapusa and Shiroda, scheduled to be held on April 23.

“Though the Lok Sabha polls and by-elections in the state will be a challenge before me being the Chief Minister of the state, I am confident that my party will win all the seats,” he said.
