Valanka Alemao to be the new Goa Congress Youth President

Amidst strong opposition from certain quarters within the Goa Pradesh Congress Committee (GPCC) including some MLAs that worked relentlessly to ensure Churchill Alemao’s daughter  looses the Goa Pradesh Youth Congress Presidential Elections, in the end the Valanka Alemao won the coveted post by 163 votes.

It may be recalled that two years-ago in a similar run-up to the GPYC Elections, Valanka Alemao was disqualified and barred from contesting the youth elections for a period not exceeding two-years. She however, did manage to get the Congress Goa Assembly Election ticket, but, she lost out to Goa Vikas Party candidate from the Benaulim constituency.

The GPYC was keenly contested between Valanka Alemao and Xavier Fialo (who held the post of vice-president of the GPYC) in the previous term. Pratima Coutinho who has been holding the GPYC president post for the last two-years and is also known to be an arch-rival of the Alemao girl, will now be looking at moving up the Congress ladder with the Mahila Congress president position.
