Former Goa Chief Minister Luizinho Faleiro on Monday quit the party, sparking rumours that he might join the Trinamool Congress. According to reports, the Navelim MLA has submitted his resignation to the Assembly Speaker shortly after praising West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee.
"I interacted with my constituents from Navelim. They are my family, and it was important to me to seek their blessings for a New Beginning. I might be old, but my blood is young. I am determined to change things. Let's end this suffering of Goans and bring a new dawn in Goa," he tweeted soon after submitting his resignation.
"I, Luizinho Faleiro, hereby tender my resignation of my seat in the house with effect from 27th September 2021. I thank the people of Navelim for placing their trust in me and look forward to their continued support in all future endeavors," he added in another.
Further details awaited.
