<p><strong>Panaji, 18 November</strong> Utpal Parrikar, son of former Goa Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar, on Thursday warned that he could take "tough decisions" if the ruling BJP did not give him a ticket from Panaji to contest the Assembly elections.  However, he said that he was confident that he would get the ticket.  Utpal's father Manohar Parrikar had represented the seat for more than 25 years.  "I have already told the party that I want to contest from Panaji and I am confident that the party will give me a ticket," Utpal said.</p>    <div class="big_center_img" data-cl-cnt="0" data-cnt-t="0" data-gal-src=""> <div> <figure><img data-pagespeed-lazy-src="" class="image_listical c2" alt="Utpal Parrikar" title="Utpal Parrikar" data-cl-slideshow="" data-cl-title = "Utpal Parrikar" data-cl-description = "" data-cl-imageid = "649238-0"" src="/img/loading.gif" onload="pagespeed.lazyLoadImages.loadIfVisibleAndMaybeBeacon(this);" onerror="this.onerror=null;pagespeed.lazyLoadImages.loadIfVisibleAndMaybeBeacon(this);"/></figure> </div> </div> <p><strong>No ticket was found in the by-election held after the death of his father.</strong></p>   <p>Atanasio Monseret, who won the seat on a Congress ticket in 2017, joined the BJP along with nine other MPs.
