PUDUCHERRY: Rajya Sabha member P Kannan on Wednesday came out from hibernation to pay tributes to Kamaraj on his birth anniversary, flaunting his status as a senior leader of the Congress party and throwing indications of continuing in the party from which he had distanced himself.
Kannan came along with supporters in procession to Kamaraj statue at Pattakadai Junction with Congress party flags and banners of AICC president Sonia Gandhi and vice president Rahul Gandhi and garlanded Kamaraj statue. The partymen shouted slogans hailing the party and their leaders.
The senior Congress leader against whom the party had issued show-cause notice for not working in support of the party candidate V Narayanasamy in the Lok Sabha polls, was considering alternate political paths. But now he seems to have turned to the Congress party again. However, Kannan refrained from making any comments, but said that he would soon meet the media.
Kannan had stated that he had no issues with the party, except with PCC and the local leaders like AICC general secretary and former minister V Narayanasamy, and LoP V Vaithilingam. Now that seems to have changed after he was called to New Delhi at the behest of AICC and talks were held with him by some leaders and issues resolved, sources close to Kannan said. Kannan, whose tenure as a RS member comes to an end on October 6, seems to have decided to continue in the party.
