Congress’s strong reaction
Congress party recently released its list of 8 candidates for Goa assembly elections. Lourenco’s name was also on this list. Despite this, Lourenco resigned from the party and joined the Trinamool Congress. In such a situation, the sharp reaction of Congress has also come to the fore. Congress called it a betrayal. Also said that those who cheat the party in this way will have to face the consequences.
Voters will teach a lesson
The Congress said Lourenço would be taught a “right lesson” by the voters of his constituency. Let us tell you that this is not the first case when a Goa Congress leader has joined TMC. Earlier, former Chief Minister Luizinho Faleiro had also left the Congress and joined the Trinamool Congress.
