Rajya Sabha bypoll: AITC nominates ex-Goa CM Luizinho Faleiro

Rajya Sabha bypoll: AITC nominates ex-Goa CM Luizinho Faleiro

New Delhi, Nov 13 (UNI) The All India Trinamool Congress (AITC) on Saturday nominated former Goa Chief Minister Luizinho Faleiro as its candidate for the Rajya Sabha bye-election.
The party posted on its official Twitter handle, "We are extremely pleased to nominate @luizinhofalerio to the Upper House of Parliament. We are confident that his efforts towards serving the nation shall be appreciated widely by our people!"
Expressing his gratitude, Faleiro said "I am thankful to all my fellow @AITC4Goa party members and
@MamataOfficial for nominating me to the Rajya Sabha! I am grateful for the opportunity to represent Goans at the national level and pledge to make Goans heard. #GoenchiNaviSakal."

Faleiro had quit the Congress and also resigned as an MLA on September 29, before joining the AITC on the same day.

The AITC, as part of its national expansion plan, has jumped into the electoral battle in Goa and decided to contest the election scheduled early next year on its own. Recently, ace tennis player Leander Paes, too, joined the Trinamool Congress.
