Former Goa CM Luizinho Faleiro joins Trinamool Congress

Former Goa chief minister Luizinho Faleiro, who resigned from Congress, has joined the Trinamool Congress (TMC) in Kolkata on Wednesday. 

“Today, when I am joining TMC, my dream is to bring the Congress family together. My main mission behind joining TMC is to defeat BJP & its divisive policies, culture of hatred & vengeance. India is totally on economic meltdown,” Luizinho Faleiro said.

Faleiro, who previously served two terms as a Chief Minister of Goa, submitted his resignation on Monday as an MLA to the Speaker of Goa Assembly ahead of state Assembly elections next year.

Luizinho Faleiro is the second Congress leader outside West Bengal who will be joining the TMC. He was recently appointed as the Chairman of the Election Coordination Committee for Goa Assembly polls and was All India Congress Committee (AICC) in charge of North-Eastern states.

Earlier, former Congress MP from Assam’s Silchar and ex-president of All India Mahila Congress, Sushmita Dev had joined the TMC in August this year. She has been assigned to look after TMC’s affairs in Tripura.

A month later Sushmita Dev was elected unopposed to the Rajya Sabha from West Bengal.
