TIRUNELVELI: A few Congress cadre in the district expressed their dissatisfaction after the party high-command chose an ‘outsider’ for Nanguneri assembly constituency for the fourth consecutive time.

Speaking to TNIE, a senior Congress leader said that a group of party cadre was disappointed with the candidature of Ruby Manoharan, the  Congress President of Kanchipuram district.

“People finally had a son of the soil as their MLA in 2001  when S Manickaraj of AIADMK won. Our party fielded H Vasanthakumar, native of Kanyakumari, in the next three consecutive elections, we helped him win in 2006 and 2016.”
