His visit to Delhi comes in the backdrop of political
developments in Puducherry where former chief minister N

Congress just few with months to go for the assembly polls.
The sources said the visit was meant to discuss the current
Rangaswamy, who had been sulking since being replaced by
Vaithilingam two years ago, had resigned his assembly
membership last month.
Although the AIADMK had held preliminary talks with

such developments of individuals breaking away from the party
would not impact it in the Union Territory.
