He said in some constituencies the party will go for adjustments without fielding candidates on a party ticket.

"Every election has different issues. The issues for Zilla Panchayat election are also different from the rest of the elections. That is why it is wrong to say this is semi-final for the 2022 Goa Assembly election," Tanavade said.

"We are sure to win a majority of seats and have our control over North Goa and South Goa Zilla Panchayats," he added.
