The Trinamool Congress (TMC) seems disappointed with its poor performance in the recent Goa Assembly elections and has decided that it is not time to pack up yet.

At a review meeting held on Saturday to dissect its performance in the state, the TMC decided to stay in Goa for the next five years to form and expand the team there.

The meeting was attended by about 60 leaders including Abhishek Banerjee, Derek O’Brien, Sushmita Dev, Ashok Tanwar and Sourav Chakraborty. National General Secretary Abhishek Banerjee has announced his decision to stay in Goa despite losing the election.

Speaking to News18, TMC MP Sushmita Dev said, “In Goa, we met candidates and office bearers who stood by the party. Very few of those who have left the team have given birth to a healthy situation for us internally. This is a new chapter for us where we as a team have shown our determination to stay in Goa and work for the people of Goa through the local leaders of Goa. “

“We will guide and support them but they will lead Goa. The defeat of the Congress in five states has further strengthened our case as a rival of the BJP among the people of Goa. We will continue to work with our Goa leaders to build strong relationships with the people. The outcome of this meeting should put an end to all speculations that TMC has come to Goa for an investigation. We are committed to working in Goa as a political party. I hope I can win people’s hearts. BJP’s victory is not a popular mandate. It is manipulated, “Dev added
