Singh is in Goa for the meeting of the screening panel which is considering candidates across all 40 constituencies in the state. He said during the meeting on Wednesday that there was a detailed discussion on the candidates.

Responding to a question on Congress MLA Mauvin Godinho joining BJP and another legislator Pandurang Madkaikar planning to join the saffron party on Thursday, Singh recalled that then Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar had levelled serious allegations of corruption against both the leaders.  

"“What has happened now ? Have they become pure after joining BJP ? BJP and (Narendra) Modi were saying we will not accept bribe nor allow corruption. Now what happened?,"” he asked.
