Vishwajit Rane

New Delhi, March 16: Rebel Congress leader Vishwajit Rane has resigned from the Congress and the Goa assembly after he went missing during a trust vote in the house which BJP coalition led by Manohar ParriKar won with 22 votes.

As per IANS, Rane submitted his resignation to the Speaker’s office and it had been accepted. However, ANI reported pro tem speaker has asked him to rethink his decision.

“I have been told by my party workers and constituents to resign from the Congress, which meant I had to resign as MLA too,” Rane said.

Earlier, high-level drama was created after Rane went missing from the assembly during the vote on the confidence motion moved by Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar in the assembly.

Congress Legislative Party leader Chandrakant Kavlekar said Rane could not be traced. Even his father doesn’t know where he is. Rane’s father, Pratapsingh Rane, is also a Congress legislator and a former Chief Minister.

Over the last few days, Rane had been accusing senior Congress leadership, including state president Luizinho Faleiro and Congress General Secretary Digvijaya Singh, of sabotaging the party’s attempts to come to power though the Congress emerged as the single largest party in the February 4 polls.

Responding to Rane’s allegations, Singh had claimed that the MLA was in touch with Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar.

Earlier in the morning Rane had told media that he is with Congres but went missing during the floor test.
