Former Goa chief minister and close aide of Congress leader Rahul Gandhi, Luizinho Faleiro, is likely to join the Trinamool Congress (TMC) on Monday at a mega press conference, sources told CNN-News18. Faleiro, who is arguably Goa’s tallest Congress leader, is currently the sitting MLA of Navelim constituency, a party bastion. He has been representing Navelim for many years now.

Speaking to CNN-News18 on Sunday, Faleiro said: “I was meditating for the last few days and was in tapasya. I have come to a decision finally.” He, however, didn’t specify about his decision.

Faleiro, who was the Congress in-charge of Tripura in 2019, may be a big help to the TMC, which is looking to expand its base in the northeastern state after registering an emphatic victory in the West Bengal assembly elections held in April-May. Sources also said he may be the chief ministerial face for the TMC in Tripura.
