MARGAO

Congress MLAs and leaders were anxiously awaiting  the arrival of AICC general secretary in-charge of Goa desk, Dr Chella  Kumar late Wednesday night as he is expected in Goa with the message from  Congress President Rahul Gandhi in the wake of the political  developments unfolding in the state over the last few days.  

Dr Chella Kumar is scheduled to go into a huddle with Congress MLAs  and leaders and brief them on his meeting with the Congress President.  

When The Goan contacted Dr Chella Kumar to shed light on  his meeting with Rahul Gandhi, the Goa desk in-charge did not deny his  meeting, saying he has briefed the Congress president on the current  political situation in Goa. “I have met our party president Rahul Gandhi  and briefed him in detail on the current political situation in the  state. Definitely, my meeting with my Congress president was concerning  politics and the unfolding developments in Goa,” Dr Chella told The  Goan.  

Dr Chella, who was in Goa when the Party MLAs had called on  the Governor with a request to call the Congress party to form an alternate government, air dashed to Delhi to brief Rahul Gandhi on the  political scenario and is returning back to the state, apparently with a  message from the Congress president. “I cannot divulge what has  transpired during talks with Rahul Gandhi. It is all about strategy. I  am returning back to Goa late tonight and will meeting party leaders and  MLAs on Thursday morning,” he added.  

Party MLAs and leaders are keenly awaiting Dr Chella’s  visit to the state, more so after his meeting with Congress President  Rahul Gandhi.   

Around 14-15 Congress MLAs had called on the Govenor on  Tuesday with a plea to convene a special session of the Goa Legislative  Assembly to allow the party to prove its majority on the floor of the  House. The Congress delegation had also strongly opposed any moves to  dissolve the Legislative Assembly before the expiry of the five year  term.
