Split for Congress in Tamil Nadu as GK Vasan quits


Chennai, Nov 03: Seems like all is not well in the Congress party in Tamil Nadu and it split for the second time in the state as GK Vasan, former union shipping minister, quit Congress to float another party.

"I have decide to follow a new political path", Vasan said while addressing reporters on Monday in Chennai.

The announcement came after EVKS Elangovan was appointed as the new Tamil Nadu Congress Committee president following the resignation of BS Gnanadesikan, who was reportedly upset over his "neglect" by the All India Congress Committee.

Vasan had raised the question in the party in support of Gnanadesikan.

The development come at a worse time for the Congress, which recorded its worst performance in the Lok Sabha elections, managing to win only 44 seats. It also lost power in Haryana and Maharashtra in last month assembly polls.
