EVKS will never be ap­pointed TNCC chief: Thirunavukkarasar

War of words be­tween the two con­tin­ues

The Hindu - - TAMIL NADU - Spe­cial Cor­re­spon­dent

Tamil Nadu Congress Com­mit­tee pres­i­dent Su. Thirunavukkarasar on Satur­day said that even if his pre­de­ces­sor E.V.K.S. Elan­go­van suc­ceeds in re­mov­ing him, the party lead­er­ship will not ap­point him as a re­place­ment.

“Elan­go­van keeps do­ing this reg­u­larly. Not just me: whom has he not crit­i­cised yet? My friend Chi­dambaram and fam­ily, Thangk­a­balu, Chel­laku­mar — he has crit­i­cised ev­ery­one who is in a po­si­tion of re­spon­si­bil­ity,” Mr. Thirunavukkarasar told re­porters.

‘Keep try­ing’

Satur­day’s state­ment by the TNCC pres­i­dent was the lat­est in a se­ries of state­ments and counter state­ments that re­flected a tus­sle be­tween the TNCC pres­i­dent and his pre­de­ces­sor.

“Let him keep try­ing to re­move peo­ple like me from our po­si­tions. Let him keep trav­el­ling to Delhi; all power to him if he can suc­ceed in get­ting peo­ple re­moved from such po­si­tions. How­ever, he will never be ap­pointed as a re­place­ment,” he said.
