New Delhi, October 10
Senior Trinamool Congress (TMC) functionary and leader of the party in Rajya Sabha Derek O’Brien’s meeting with singer Lucky Ali and actress-turned-activist Nafisa Ali has triggered speculation about the two joining Mamata Banerjee’s party ahead of the Goa elections.
After their meeting, Nafisa Ali posted a picture on Instagram with a caption lauding Mamata Banerjee’s decision to contest from Goa. “India needs a vibrant leader and am happy that Mamata Banerjee has decided to contest from Goa,” she wrote.
Lucky Ali, son of Bollywood comedian late Mehmood Ali, mostly stays in Goa.
The TMC is reportedly serious about Goa. Abhishek Banerjee, TMC general secretary, is expected to visit Goa after Durga Puja. — TNS
