Former Goa CM Luizinho Faleiro Quits Congress, Likely To Join TMC

Panaji: In another setback to Congress, former Goa Chief Minister, Luizinho Faleiro bade adieu to his years-long association with the Grand Old Party on Monday. Faleiro’s exit is an addition to the list of Congress leaders quitting the party on recent times. Fuelling rumours that he is set to shift loyalty to the TMC, Faleiro lavished praises on party supremo Mamata Banerjee, adding Goa needed the West Bengal CM to take on the BJP dispensation.

“Mamata is a symbol of women empowerment and a streetfighter. She is fighting divisive forces. She poses a real direct challenge to the BJP. I request her to come to Goa and take charge,” he was quoted by India Today.

Lashing out at the Congress, the former CM expressed his dismay at the treatment meted out to him and the people of the state. “I suffered in dignified silence. If my suffering was so much, imagine the plight of Goans who voted Congress to power. Let’s end this suffering and bring a new dawn in Goa,” Faleiro said addressing his supporters.

Submitting his resignation as Navelim MLA, Faleiro emphasised, he may be old but his “blood is young.” Though, Faleiro hasn’t clarified whether he would be joining the TMC, his entry is just a matter of time.

Banerjee recently announced her Mission Goa endeavour and exhorted her party to gear up for the state polls scheduled next year. However, the party would desperately look for a credible face to pose a challenge to the ruling BJP and Faleiro seems to be the man, she has zeroed in on.

Faleiro follows leaders like Jitin Prasada and Sushmita Dev who have cut off ties with Congress in search of greener pastures.
