CHENNAI: The Congress high command has summoned TNCC president E V K S Elangovan and key Congress functionaries in Tamil Nadu to Delhi on January 20 to hold detailed discussions on the forthcoming Assembly elections.

Some past presidents of TNCC and former Union ministers, including P Chidambaram, are likely to meet AICC president Sonia Gandhi and vice president Rahul Gandhi and discuss poll strategies.

DMK president M Karunanidhi had recently said that the Congress would not be left out when his party forges an alliance for facing the Assembly elections and Elangovan had promptly thanked him for it.

Elangovan had expressed the view that though the party wishes to contest on its own in the Assembly elections, if the Congress high command wishes to have an alliance, the TNCC would act in accordance with it.

Recently, a group of Congress leaders from Tamil Nadu met Rahul Gandhi and complained about Elangovan’s ‘unilateral’ attitude.  Following this, Elangovan was summoned to Delhi. However, he returned home ‘unscathed’. A couple of days ago, he took a dig at Mahila Congress leader Nagma.
