A brief about Rane, the three constituencies

Seven MPV cars arrive in Honda, as it is the place where the campaigning candidates regroup during the campaign forays.

The news: The Poriem constituency, which has been represented by Congress politician Pratapsingh Rane since 1972, is currently being challenged by three Ranes: Pratapsingh Rane’s daughter-in-law Deviya Rane (BJP), Vishwajit Krishnarao Rane (AAP), and Ranjeetsingh Rane (BJP) (Congress).

Vishwajit Pratapsingh Rane

The backstory: The Ranes, a clan of warrior chieftains from Rajasthan whose narrative of arrival in Goa varies depending on who you ask, have had a stronghold on Sattari from time immemorial.

  • Some believe they came here as mercenaries to protect the Bhosles of Sawantwadi against the Marathas of Kolhapur; others believe their history in Goa extends back to the reign of Yusuf Adil Shah of Bijapur (1490-1510), a Bahamani Deccan Sultan from before the Portuguese arrived.
  • According to some people, the first Rane, Satroji Rane, is supposed to have settled in Goa sixteen generations ago.
  • Ranjeetsingh and Pratapsingh are from the fifteenth generation, while the two Vishwajits, namely Vishwajit Pratapsingh Rane and Vishwajit Krishnarao Rane are from the sixteenth.
  • The clan holds 12 mocassos (land grants) across Sattari, each the size of a hamlet, while the government owns the rest of the taluka’s territory (Forest Department and Revenue Land).
  • Ranjeet’s father, Jaysinghrao Rane, a member of the Praja Socialist Party at the time, was the first MLA to represent the Union Territory of Goa, Daman, and Diu’s Satari constituency. The constituency has been expanded since Goa became a state in 1987, when the number of representatives was increased to 40.
