NEW DELHI, Oct 13: Former Union Minister and senior Congress observer for the Goa Assembly elections P Chidambaram on Wednesday hailed former Goa CM Pratapsing Rane as a senior statesman agreeing to his request to inaugurate the Goa PCC's election office in Panaji on Thursday at 11 AM.

"It is a splendid beginning to the Congress election campaign," he tweeted.

In another tweet on Monday, Chidambaram had said he met Rane, the six time CM of Goa, who held the office for 18 years and who laid the foundation for the prosperity and development of Goa and built modern Goa.

"His knowledge and wisdom will guide the Congress party as we prepare to contest the next Assembly election in 2022," Chidambaram added.

He, however, has no word on whether he at all asked Rane to bring back to Congress his son Vishwajit Rane, who defected to the BJP after the 2017 Assembly elections and who is currently the health minister in the BJP government in Goa. Chidambaram is bound by the Congress High Command's diktat that no ticket to the defectors and that applies equally to Vishwajit.
