Panaji: Congress on Wednesday refused to commit giving tickets to all the sitting party legislators in Goa for the State Assembly elections due next year.
    
All India Congress Committee Observer Jagmit Singh Brar on Wednesday told reporters in South Goa that it cannot be said in all certainty that sitting legislators of the party would be given tickets for the ensuing elections.
    
Brar, who held a series of meetings with the Congress legislators here, said recommendations of Pradesh Election Committee (PEC) would be given due importance while deciding on the tickets.
    
He said sitting legislators might be refused the ticket, if there is a demand from the constituency people to change the face.
    
The Congress leader, however, said the party would make all possible attempts to keep its flock together as there might be a rebellion after announcement of tickets.
    
"Now it is for us to see how we will keep everyone together after certain adjustments are done while giving the berths," Brar said.
    
The Congress leader said the party wants current alliance-Congress-NCP-Maharashtrawadi Gomantak party (MGP), to continue in future.
    
Brar said the party will be having meeting of the coordination committee in which discussions would be held with NCP on seat-sharing.
    
"As far as MGP is concerned we will have to see what kind of alliance we are going for," he said not refusing to have post-poll alliance with the party, which is the oldest regional political outfit in the state.
    
The AICC observer said Congress is in a good position to garner majority on its own.     

When reminded that local Congress leaders are not supporting such a coalition, Brar said Congress-NCP alliance is a national issue and is not state specific.
