Kolkata, West Bengal Chief Minister on Saturday urged individuals, organisations and political parties to join forces to “defeat the BJP and their divisive agenda”. 

Taking to Twitter, Banerjee said, “As I prepare for my maiden visit to Goa on 28th, I call upon all individuals, organisations and political parties to join forces to defeat the BJP and their divisive agenda. “

“The people of Goa have suffered enough over the last 10 years. Together, we will usher in a new dawn for Goa by forming a new govt that will truly be a govt of the people of Goa and committed to realising their aspirations! #GoenchiNaviSakal, ” she said.

On Friday, the TMC chief appointed former Goa Chief Minister Luizinho Faleiro as national vice-president of the party.

The 70-year-old politician, a four-time CM of Goa, had joined All India Trinamool Congress (AITC) late last month.

AITC general secretary Abhishek Banerjee said in a statement, “In a political career spanning over four decades, former Goa CM Luizinho Faleiro has worked ardently towards the development of people. 

“We have full faith that under his able guidance AITC will reach greater heights and continue the fight to protect every Indian citizen democratic rights.”

The West Bengal CM, who is visiting North Bengal on October 24, will fly to Goa on October 28 from Bagdogra.

She will be in Goa for four days and return to Kolkata on November 1.
