Former Goa BJP MLA Joins Trinamool Congress

Panaji: Former Goa BJP legislator Kiran Kandolkar, who had likened West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee to goddess Durga last month, quit the saffron party and joined the Trinamool Congress (TMC) on Saturday.

The working president of regional outfit Goa Forward Party, Kandolkar joined the TMC in presence of the party Parliamentarian Mahua Moitra at a formal event here.

“The Congress does not appear serious in sending the BJP home. I am serious in wanting to send them home. Goans are serious. The Trinamool Congress was an option. A leader like Rahul Gandhi is not talking against Modi. Arvind Kejriwal of the AAP is coming to Goa like a tourist but is not saying a word against Prime Minister Narendra Modi,” Kandolkar was quoted as saying at a press conference by news agency IANS.

“It is only Mamata Banerjee who has literally fought Modi and defeated them in Bengal. The entire country has seen it,” Kandolkar also said.

“I have no faith in the Congress and it is known that they leave their candidates hanging until the last minute which then leaves little time for the candidate to go around campaigning which then results in a loss. I found TMC is the real option to send the BJP home. In the coming days many more will join. We will form a government and bring about a new dawn,” the Goanese leader said.
