Goa: 4 pro-CAA Cong leaders quit, 3 join BJP

Jan 02, 2020 22:20 IST

Four Goa Congress leaders resigned from the party on Thursday to protest against its stand on the Citizenship Amendment Act, and three of them later joined the BJP. Former Panaji Congress block committee president Prasad Amonkar, former block committee secretary Dinesh Kubal, former youth leader Shivraj Tarkar and North Goa minority cell chief Javed Sheikh quit the Congress, saying they were in favour of the amended citizenship law. The 3 leaders who joined the BJP said the Congress should stop misleading people and creating fear in the minds of minorities for political mileage.
