PANAJI: Amid talk of the possible entry of former Goa CM Luizinho Faleiro into the Trinamool Congress, the senior Congress MLA is expected to make a major announcement on Monday. A message from Faleiro’s office said that the former Congress Working Committee member would address “an important press conference” on Monday afternoon.
Interestingly, the venue of Faleiro’s press conference is a Goa resort where TMC MPs Derek O’Brien and Prasun Banerjee have been putting up ever since they arrived in Goa last week to participate in a series of meetings with aspiring candidates for the assembly polls and with media persons and a cross section of people.
TMC is seeking to make a re-entry into Goa politics ahead of the 2022 polls. Last week two of Faleiro’s key aides and state Congress office bearers Yatish Naik and Agnelo Fernandes claimed that Faleiro was being sidelined in the opposition party. Faleiro is one of the five Congress MLAs in a 40-member state legislative assembly.
