Valanka Alemao likely to be Goa Mahila Congress Chief

Though Valanka Alemao has been laying low post the defeat at the Goa Assembly polls last year, it seems that besides the hope of check-mating Caitano Silva in High Court over the Portuguese nationality issue, she is most likely to be appointed as the Goa Congress Mahila Chairman.

Sources in both the All India Congress Committee (AICC) and Goa Pradesh Congress Committee (GPCC) have confirmed that of the names submitted to the high command, which also included the current Youth Congress President Pratima Coutinho, Valanka Alemao has been finalized, though the written communication will only come once the entire reshuffling of the GPCC is conducted.

Interestingly, it appears that after of year of people-afflicted hibernation, the once powerful South Goa political family is making its in-roads back into the Goa political scene, with Churchill Alemao appearing to be a favored candidate over Francisco Sardinha for the South Goa MP ticket, Yuri Alemao taking over the reins of the NCP Youth wing in the state and now Valanka Alemao likely to become the Goa Mahila Congress chairman.

It also interesting to note that both at AICC and GPCC, the current Youth President Pratima Coutinho appears to have not found favor with senior leaders, especially over her performance as the Youth president during the time of the election and also controversies with local leaders,  an AICC senior leader revealed.
