Congress expels Cortalim candidate Raymond De Sa

Reacting to the unexpected decision of its Cortalim candidate Raymond De Sa to withdraw from the Cortalim by-poll at the last moment, the Congress high command has instructed the Goa Pradesh Congress Committee (GPCC) to expel the candidate for not consulting with the party prior to taking the decision.

While De Sa claims that he had given time to the Congress high command to resolve certain issues by 11 am on May 21, Congress leaders state that their candidate had been missing since 9.30 am this morning and was not traceable, even though many tried to locate. Sources at Congress high command are convinced that their candidate worked by conniving with the BJP and some Congress leaders to upset the future position of the party in the state.

De Sa withdrawal led to BJP candidate Alina Saldanha being elected unopposed from the Cortalim seat.
