Panaji: Former AAP Goa Convener Elvis Gomes on Sunday joined Congress party, months after he had quit Arvind Kejriwal led political outfit.
Gomes, a former Bureacrat and face of AAP for 2017 Goa Assembly election, joined Congress party in presence of Goa Pradesh Congress Committee President Girish Chodankar, Leader of Opposition Digambar Kamat and others.
Chodankar said that several other leaders from the political parties like AAP and other outfits would be joining Congress in the days to come.
“Goa is looking at Congress as an option for the corrupt and inefficient BJP rule,” he said.
Talking to reporters, Gomes said that Congress is the only party which understands the feeling of Goans. “Congress has been the oldest party and it has given the maximum performance in the coastal state,” he added.
