Luizinho Faleiro, a Goa Congress strongman and former Chief Minister, is expected to resign from the party at a news conference today, amid speculation that he may join the Trinamool Congress (TMC) in the coming days.
According to Congress insiders, the media address was not approved by the party, fueling speculation that Luizinho Faleiro may switch sides and join the TMC.
According to sources, senior Congress politician Luizinho Faleiro may leave from the party following a spat with the party leadership.
According to the sources, TMC has been in contact with Luizinho Faleiro and has given him an offer. The TMC is prepared to enter Goa, according to Abhishek Banerjee, the party’s national general secretary, who made the announcement during Mamata Banerjee’s campaign in Bhabanipur on Sunday.
Derek O’Brien and Prasun Banerjee, TMC MPs, recently visited Goa ahead of the upcoming assembly elections. Members of Prashant Kishor’s IPAC are also camped out in Goa, laying the groundwork for the party’s entry into the BJP-run state.
