Union Minister of State for Prime Minister’s Office V Narayanasamy on Sunday said Congress would face the Lok Sabha polls unitedly and he would meet Rajya Sabha MP Kannan personally to seek his support.

While answering query on the resignation of 50 party functionaries opposing his re-nomination, Narayanasamy said he had already spoken to PCC chief A V Subramanian on the resignation issue. The Union Minister, who was answering queries after the release of a brochure containing the list of his achievements as MP, said the Congress party in UT is as united as ever and the political rivals are engaged in false propaganda.

It might be recalled that led by Vetriselvam, a supporter of Rajya Sabha MP Kannan, 50 Congress workers submitted letters of resignations from the primary membership of party. The resignations were in protest against re-nomination of Narayanasamy to contest the Puducherry LS seat.

The cadre said Narayanasamy was being given the opportunity since 1985 and the member’s views on candidature were not sought before finalising.

Narayanasamy said CM N Rangasamy was ‘misleading’ people by unleashing false propaganda against the Congress-led UPA government by saying that the Centre had not provided enough funds for Union Territory.

He said the NR government had spent `1,270 crore out of the `2,750 crore sanctioned for 2012-13 fiscal, which is only 52 per cent. He charged the CM and the ruling NR government for not approaching the Centre with proposals for the development of Union Territory.

On charges that Congress was ‘alienated’ without an alliance, the Minister said, “Majority of the population support Congress and we have faith in them.”
