Amid talk of the possible entry of former Chief Minister Luizinho Faleiro into the Trinamool Congress, the senior Congress MLA is expected to make a major announcement on Monday.

A message from Faleiro's office said that the former Congress Working Committee member would address "an important press conference" on Monday afternoon.

Interestingly, the venue of Faleiro's press conference is a city resort where TMC MPs Derek O'Brien and Prasun Banerjee have been putting up, ever since they arrived in Goa last week to participate in a series of meetings with aspiring candidates for the assembly polls and with media persons and a cross section of people.

Faleiro's name has been linked to the TMC, which is seeking to make a re-entry into Goa politics ahead of the 2022 polls.

Last week two of his key aides and state Congress office-bearers Yatish Naik and Agnelo Fernandes claimed that Faleiro was being sidelined in the opposition party.

Faleiro is one of the five Congress MLAs in a 40-member state legislative assembly.
