Panaji: The attempts by Churchill Alemao to get South Goa Congress ticket to his daughter Valanka seems to be heading nowhere. The Congress party has totally refused to give ticket to her.
“Churchill is not in congress, he is in NCP so the question does not arise,” Congress spokesman Siddhanath Buyao told reporters in Panaji responding to a question on whether Valanka would be given ticket.
Party sources had confirmed that Churchill was lobbying hard to get ticket to his daughter from South Goa. The NCP legislator has been trying to use his old contacts in Delhi to launch Valanka.
Alemao family was rejected by voters in 2012 elections but Churchill had managed to revive his political career during 2017 polls.
With the local Congress leaders clearly refusing ticket to Valanka, now it is to be seen which cards Churchill will play.
