Congress to hold legislature party meeting in Puducherry tomorrow

Puducherry: After a week of indecision, the Congress Party is finally holding its legislature party meeting in Puducherry tomorrow.

The party is yet to announce its Chief Ministerial candidate for the Union Territory.

The state party leaders had been to Delhi to consult party high command on the choice of Chief Minister.

Senior Congress leader and former Delhi chief minister Shiela Dikshit and Party General Secretary Mukul Wasnik are attending the meeting as AICC observers.

Meanwhile, opposition parties allege that infighting in the Congress Party is delaying formation of government.

Former chief minister V. Vaithialingam denied any rift in the party on the issue of Chief Minister.

He justified the delay saying that Congress being a national party, it has to consult central leadership before reaching at a decision. (ANI)
