New Delhi: Rebel Congress MLA Vishwajit Rane, who went missing when the floor test in the Goa Assembly took place this morning, has resigned.
In fact, he resigned from the party immediately after Manohar Parrikar proved his majority in the state assembly.
Rane who had questioned the leadership in Congress said the party has broken the trust of people of Goa and is responsible for destroying the mandate given by them. “Congress have betrayed the trust of people of Goa and I resign from the party. The party is solely responsible for destroying the mandate given by the people of Goa,” said Rane speaking to news channels.
Interestingly, when the floor test was happening this afternoon, Rane could not be traced.
Chandrakant Kavlekar, Cong MLA said, “We tried to find out if he was in the washroom, but could not find him. We tried to contact him, but he was untraceable. He was with us in the morning and signed on the whip too. Even his father doesn’t know where he is.”
Now you do.
