Goa: In a major setback to Aam Admi Party (AAP) in Goa, Elvis Gomes, the party’s founder-convener in the state and who was the chief ministerial candidate for the 2017 assembly polls, resigned from the primary membership of the party on Friday alleging that it was being controlled by a ‘high command culture’ from Delhi and had compromised on its core principles.
Gomes said he would contest the next assembly elections in 2022 from Cuncolim constituency but declined to confirm which party he would join.Gomes had quit the Goa administration as senior scale officer in October 2016 to take over as AAP’s state convener. He resigned as convener of the party two months ago.“It’s not a decision taken in haste. It’s a well thought out decision over the past two months.
