The BJP secured 13 seats in the state Assembly polls. Sources added that the three Independent MLAs who won in the elections were also ready to extend support to the BJP.

Main parties in Goa are the ruling BJP, Indian National Congress, AAP, Nationalist Congress Party, Shiv Sena, Maharashtrawadi Gomantak Party, Goa Suraksha Manch, among others.

"We don't take anyone for granted, we had discussion with both (GFP and MGP) and they have told us, "you elect your leader and they will respond", Mr. Singh said when asked about the warning of GFP leader Vijay Sardesai to Congress not to take the party support for granted.

Meanwhile, lone Nationalist Congress Party MLA Churchill Alemao, who has been a part of a Congress-led coalition government from 2007-12, has said he was keen to be a part of a government.

All three parties are backing ex-Goa Chief Minister and now Union Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar for the Chief Minister's position, and so are independent candidates, say sources.

"We are confident of getting the required numbers and stake claim to form the government on Monday", Lobo said. The Congress has won 17 seats and is the single largest party. The magic number mark in the 40-member Goa assembly is 21.

The petition signed by Goa Forward supporter David Aguiar said numerous BJP's controversial decisions, like increasing the number of casinos, de-classification of coconut trees and nationalisation of rivers, were opposed by the Goa Forward.

Parrikar has always enjoyed strong support in Goa whereas his successor Laxmikant Parsekar was always the weaker candidate.
