Luizinho Faleiro says can’t see a future for Congress and also criticised BJP

Panaji: Former Goa Chief Minister Luizinho Faleiro had resigned on Monday from the state assembly membership and Congress. In his resignation letter to Congress interim president Sonia Gandhi, he wrote that “Given the present situation, I do not see any future for the party.”

He in one of the tweets also criticised BJP, “Today my Goa is bleeding & suffering due to BJP administration. I want to bring a NEW DAWN to Goa & start a new movement in the state. And I appeal to all Goans to join me. GOA NEEDS A CREDIBLE ALTERNATIVE.”

He is likely to Trinamool Congress (TMC) on Wednesday, according to NDTV sources. Before resigning he had praised Mamta Banerjee, “We need such fighters which are in the same party ideology, policies, principles and programmes. I would like the larger picture all Congress parties to come together to fight the BJP.” he said.

“Mamata Banerjee has given a tough fight to Narendra Modi. The Mamata formula has won in Bengal,” Luizinho Faleiro told reporters yesterday.

This will be second prominent faithlessness to the Trinamool after Sushmita Deb’s crossover. Deb has been given a big role in Tripura ahead of elections next year. Faleiro is likely to support TMC in Goa where Congress is weakening and Aam Aadmi Party is campaigning aggressively.

Faleiro was the Congress’s in-charge of Tripura for the 2019 national election and could also help the Trinamool in the northeastern state where it is looking to expand its footprint and take on the ruling BJP.

Senior Trinamool Congress leaders Derek O Brien and Prasun Banerjee are in talks with Faleiro at Goa. Goa will be witnessing elections next year along with Uttar Pradesh, Uttarakhand, Punjab, and other states.
