"Last two months on account of health and because I had to leave for overseas for treatment, I could not meet you".

Addressing party workers at a meeting held at Dr Shyama Prasad Mukherjee Stadium near Panaji, Shah said the BJP had won all the assembly polls held post 2014. "BJP will form its 21st National Democratic Alliance Government in the country", Shah told booth workers in Goa, during his brief visit to the State on Sunday.

During the convention, a pre-recorded video message was shared in which Goa Chief Minister said he will return to the state in a few weeks.

While assuring that the current BJP-led coalition government will complete its five-year tenure in power, the BJP National President Amit Shah on Sunday urged the booth workers to ensure that BJP gets full majority with 35 seats in the next State Assembly elections.

"BJP is such a political party in which a person selling a tea can also become the Prime Minister of a great democracy like India", he said.

This is the first time Parrikar has communicated with his party workers via video, the last time being when he was about to leave for the U.S. for treatment in March this year. The committee was formed by Parrikar before he left Goa for his treatment.

"He (Parrikar) said I am missing all my booth workers. I therefore ask you all to start preparations immediately", Parrikar said.

The BJP President also said that Parrikar was keen to know how the party had fared in Karnataka, which voted on Saturday.

Rane said that the aim of BJP should be "Congress-mukt Goa".

The opposition Congress in Goa on Monday demanded that Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leaders must make their stand clear on Mahadayi issue. "Our chief minister is very much there and with his guidance, the administration is also functioning smoothly", he stated.

The Congress MLAs and office-bearers staged a demonstration here at the memorial of Goa's first chief minister, late Dayanand Bandodkar, in support of their demand.
