Puducherry: Puducherry Chief Minister V
Vaithilingam today left for Delhi following summons from
Congress highcommand.

Vaithilingam left for Delhi from Mahe, an enclave of the
Union Territory in Kerala, where he declared open the Rajiv
Gandhi Government Auyrvedha College, party sources said.

His visit to Delhi comes in the backdrop of political
developments in Puducherry where former chief minister N
Rangaswamy has recently floated a new political party N R
Congress just few with months to go for the assembly polls.
The sources said the visit was meant to discuss the current
political situation.

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
Rangasamy recently in a bid to bring him into its front, he
continues to be non-committal.

The Congress has dismissed Rangaswamy`s venture saying
such developments of individuals breaking away from the party
would not impact it in the Union Territory.
