Panaji: The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) has said it is ready to face elections in Goa any time.

The elections to the 40-member Goa Legislative Assembly are due in March next year.

"People are so sick and tired of this BJP government. People can demand an early election as well," AAP leader Ashish Khetan told PTI.

"We are ready to face election anytime from now in all the constituencies," he said.

AAP has already announced it will contest all the 40 constituencies of the state.

Party's national convener and Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal had also recently addressed a public rally in Panaji.

Meanwhile, senior party leader Ashutosh expressed confidence that the party will form the government on its own in Goa after the polls.

However, he also said that AAP would prefer to sit in opposition if it has to take help of any other political outfit to gain power.

He said Kejriwal is likely to visit Goa at least once a month and later more frequently when the polls approach.

Notably, Chief Minister Laxmikant Parsekar had ruled out early polls in the state, saying he was not in favour of elections before completion of five years of the government.
