Goa Chief Minister Pramod Sawant was among the early ones to cast his vote for the Lok Sabha elections in the state's North Goa constituency, where Union minister Shripad Naik is the BJP's candidate.
During the early hours of Wednesday, two of the three Maharashtrawadi Gomantak Party (MGP) MLAs-- Manohar Ajgaonkar and Dipak Pawaskar-- gave a letter to officiating Speaker Michael Lobo, merging their party's legislative wing with the BJP.

Governor Mridula Sinha has convened the special session, which at 11.30 am. Chief Minister Pramod Sawant had said he will prove his majority in the House.
Pramod Sawant will have Narendra Modi’s full backing, but he would have to work out his own ways to reach out to his party men, allies and those sections of Goa voters who would look at the ‘BJP without Manohar Parrikar’ as an anathema.
The BJP-led government in the coastal state claims support of 21 MLAs - 12 from the BJP, three each of allies Goa Forward Party (GFP) and Maharashtrawadi Gomantak Party (MGP) and three Independents.
Sawant visited the family members of Parrikar at their private residence at Dona Paula near here around 12 noon, before heading to the CM's Office at state Secretariat, Porvorim.
Sawant holds a Bachelor's Degree in Ayurveda, Medicine and Surgery and served as the Assembly Speaker before becoming the CM of Goa
Goa Forward Party chief Vijai Sardesai and Maharashtrawadi Gomantak Party's Sudin Dhavalikar were made deputy chief ministers.
The BJP managed to break the deadlock in Goa, offering key allies their pound of flesh, by accepting their demand for deputy CM's posts.
