Churchill, Joaquim Resign from Govt

 As a fall-out of the disqualification of Valanka Alemao from contesting the Indian Youth Congress – Goa Elections for a period of twelve months; her father PWD Minister Churchill Alemao and her uncle Urban Development Minister Joaquim Alemao have resigned from the Cabinet of the Goa legislative assembly and from the Goa Pradesh Congress Committee.

At the moment their resignation letter from their ministerial portfolio has been handed over to the Chief Minister Digambar Kamat and at the moment to decision of acceptance or rejection has been put on hold as the Chief Minister is to speak with the AICC leaders at the party high command.

While many see Valanka Alemao’s disqualification as an AICC measure to no longer play fiddle to the PWD Minister’s sinister threats; it will be interesting to note the stance that AICC leaders will adopt in light of the new development; as sources in AICC reveal this is as a perfect opportunity to keep Churchill Alemaos threat in check; even his choice of leaving the Congress party will not disturb much of the political strength of the government since many MLAs and Ministers will not support Churchill or Joaquim on this issue.
