There are mixed reactions by ruling MLAs on the Kannadiga community floating their panel during panchayat election. Some MLA say these people are here to divide the people and Goans should remain united. While, others said any person has the right to contest elections anywhere in India.

All Goa Kannada Mahasangha president Siddhana Meti had earlier said their organization will float a panel of candidates for the upcoming panchayat elections in Goa. They put their candidates in villages with a strong Kannadiga presence. This announcement has led to a huge outcry among some sections of society. Goa 365 spoke to Panchayat Minister Mauvin Godinho, Independent MLA supporting BJP Alex Reginald Lourenco and Vasco MLA Daji Salkar on the issue.
