The Congress party on Sunday released the list of candidates for the Goa assembly elections.  For the Pernem constituency, Jitendra Gaonkar has been named candidate.

Meanwhile, Congress has decided to go without declaring the chief ministerial face despite having an incumbent face in Punjab as a chief minister.

Sources in Congress say that it will only be decided after the results and Congress legislative party will decide the new leader with the consent of the high command, except at few occasions the party does not project a chief minister's face.

The Congress faces a major challenge of retaining power in Punjab, and to come up with a credible show against the BJP in Uttar Pradesh, Uttarakhand, Goa, and Manipur, said news agency IANS.
