On the other hand, Congress general secretary Digvijaya Singh said his party's electoral revival might begin with the coastal western state.
"These election results point out that Congress-mukt Bharat is around the corner... The party will be routed completely when polls are held in Goa," Sawant said.
Asked if Goa could help reverse the Congress fortunes, which have been slipping since the party's stinging loss in the 2014 general elections, Singh said: "This is what we intend to do."
Goa is likely to go to polls in January next.
