While the All India Congress Committee secretary A Chella Kumar is in Goa, former Rajya Sabha MP John Fernandes who has been finalized by the Congress High Command to take-over the reigns of the Goa Pradesh Congress Committee as its President is in Delhi ironing out to plans on how the party needs to move forward in the state.

Sources in AICC reveal that the actual purpose of Kumar’s visit has been to discipline the leaders in the state and also gather feedback on the affairs of the party in the state, ahead of the announcement of the GPCC President.

Since broke the news that Fernandes has been finalized as the GPCC president, there has been varied reaction to such a decision of the Congress High Command. Some senior leaders who have assisted the Congress in losing their hold on the state-politics with their corruption felt that Fernandes does not have the financial resources to take the party forward, only former MLAs have the financial and people power to revamp the party. However with AICC firm on its stand that no defeated MLA would become GPCC president and that it would be a Catholic candidate, it would be difficult for the like of Agnelo Fernandes or Alexio Sequeira to get to the top spot.
