Goa Congress chief quits; says Rahul's speech inspired action

Goa Congress chief quits; says Rahul's speech inspired action”

Inspired by Rahul Gandhi's speech at the party's 84th plenary session on Sunday, Goa Congress president Shantaram Naik has made a decision to resign from the post to make way for a "young and committed" leader for the organisation in the state. Last year, in Assembly elections February 2017, Congress emerged as the single largest party, but the BJP managed to crack state's arithmetic calculation. I am inspired by Rahul Gandhi's speech.

Naik, 71, is the first senior Congress leader to resign after Rahul Gandhi announced on Sunday in his concluding speech that he wants to give the younger generation a chance to come forward and lead the party. Naik said that he would make a formal announcement before the media on Wednesday and then write to Gandhi asking him to relieve him of his duties and hand over the charge to a "young Congressman' from Goa". "I will continue to work for the party even after stepping down", he said.

Speaking of his expectation from party's new state chief, Naik said, the new party chief should maintain a balance between the legislative wing and state Congress leadership. "I only want to suggest that somebody who has put in at least 10 years in the party and has love and commitment for the party should be given a chance to come forward and lead the party in the country", he said about the future leaders of the party. Congress, with 16 legislators, is now the main opposition in the Goa Legislative Assembly. Following the resignation, the Goa Congress leader said my services will always be available to the party and its leader.

"Naik, along with leader of Opposition Chandrakant Kavlekar, Ponda MLA Ravi Naik and other senior leaders, attended the Indian National Congress" 84th Plenary Session in New Delhi. However, a statement released by his office late on Monday said, "There is no truth in the talks about my resignation".
