Vishwajit Rane, The former MLA Congress who quit the Congress to join the BJP last week, is criticised party Vice-President Rahul Gandhi
Vishwajit Rane had first gone missing during the assembly floor test in March and then quit the party on the same day.
Rane called Gandhi a “non-serious” and an inaccessible leader, whose leadership would reduce the Congress to 20 seats in the 2019 general election.
“The Congress has a non-serious leader called Rahul Gandhi. He is not serious about the people of the state who give you a mandate, not serious about government formation. He is not even accessible. Seriousness of a leader is very important for a party to grow,” Rane, son of former Goa Chief Minister and sitting legislator Pratapsinh Rane, said
“If this is the nature in which you want to take the party forward, then I am confident in 2019 from 44 they will be reduced to 20,” Rane said.
After criticising the Congress leadership for not doing enough to seize power in Goa, despite emerging as the single largest party in the February 4 polls, Rane had gone missing during the subsequent floor test on March 16 and resigned from the Congress on the same day.
