Aleixo Reginaldo misled party till last minute, says Congress

After emerging as the single largest party at the 2017 assembly polls with 17 MLAs, Congress has seen its strength gradually reduce and is now down to two legislators in the House following Curtorim MLA Aleixo Reginaldo Lourenco’s sudden resignation on Monday. Lourenco is the second Congress MLA to desert the party in the past few days.
