“After the last election of assembly, that night, when AICC GS Digvijaya Singh did not allow me to hand over the letter of formation of government to the Governor,” said Faleiro.

He said that in protest of that (not allowing him to hand over the letter), he resigned as President of Goa Pradesh Congress Committee (GPCC).

“I even refused to take over the responsibility as Leader of Opposition even though majority members of the group were in support of me,” Faleiro said.

“They (party leaders) had promised that they will form the government in 24 hours but 24 months have passed and nothing has happened,” he said.

“I have a patience. I have not interfered and I will not interfere (in the party affairs),” he said.

Faleiro also refused that he was a contender for upcoming Lok Sabha election.

“I am not interested in contesting for parliamentary election. I have not even applied for it,” he said.
