    Chennai - While major political parties in Tamil Nadu,
    like the AIADMK, the DMK and the PMK are in the process
    of revamping the party structure following the setbacks
    suffered during the 2016 Assembly elections, the BJP and
    the Congress leadership are groping in the dark about how
    to prepare the respective organisations in time for the
    2019 Lok Sabha election.

    The Congress High Command is faced with a peculiar
    problem in finding out a successor for EVKS Elangovan who
    submitted his resignation early June following the poor
    show by the party in the May 16 Assembly election. The
    Congress had contested the election as an ally of the DMK
    and won eight of the 41 seats.

    In 2011 Assembly election the Congress won just five of
    the 61 seats. The new TNCC president, whoever it may be,
    will not get peace of mind from the moment he/she assumes
    office at Satyamoorthi Bhavan. The next day itself will
    see processions by various faction leaders to New Delhi
    to complain against the incumbent and demand the
    dismissal of the new president. Thatís the precedence
    which was being followed all these years.

    Om Shanti
