Congress MLA Vishwajit Rane on Thursday resigned from the party as well as an MLA saying the top leadership failed in forming government when the party was clearly in a position to do so post the Goa Assembly election result. The Congress won 17 of the 40 assembly seats and emerged as the single largest party.

Speaking to reportes, Rane said: “the moment Digvijaya Singh said I was seen meeting Parrikar, I took a decision to abstain. That was a huge statement to make. We have worked hard to reach here and such statements cannot be tolerated.”

Rane submitted his resignation to pro-tem speaker Siddharth Kuncalienkar, and he will contest once again from Valpoi. “I’m fed up of this party. No decision yet on which platform I’ll contest from. I’m going back to my people to ask them.” Rane added that the Congress leadership’s handling of affairs has led the party to this condition. “I do not expect anything from the Congress. They have destroyed the trust of the people of Goa,” he said.
