Chidambaram likely to be made TNCC chief
After prolonged deliberations on picking a new TNCC chief ahead of the local body polls in Tamil Nadu, AICC is likely to name former Union finance minister P Chidambaram to take over the reins of the state unit.
A tall leader like Chidambaram, recently elected to the Rajya Sabha from Maharashtra, is seen by the Congress high command as a much needed tonic for the party to prepare for the 2019 Lok Sabha elections to unseat the BJP . Asked if he was in the reckoning, Chidambaram told TOI, “Please ask AICC.“ It has been more than a month since E V K S Elangovan resigned assuming moral responsibility for the party’s poor show in the poll and the TNCC has remained headless.
Chidambaram has set a few conditions for taking up the task including rejuvenating the party and expanding its base by bringing the warring factions together.
