Probably, the most striking in the list is the omission of state Congress committee general secretary Vijai Sardesai for Fatorda in favour of GPCC vice-president Sheikh.

Much to the relief of the BJP, Sameer Salgaocar, son of Sanvordem MLA and mine owner Anil Salgaocar, who was a strong contender for the Congress ticket in Mandrem, resigned from the Congress party on Monday.

Dayanand Sopte may have succeeded in obtaining the Congress ticket for the Mandrem constituency, but will face a tough challenge from others who were aspiring for the same ticket.
