Homecoming for "Karate" Thiagarajan as he rejoins Congress
Chennai, Apr 15 (UNI) It was happy home coming for expelled AIADMK leader and Chennai Corporation Deputy Mayor ''Karate'' R Thiagarajan as he rejoined his parent party, 'Congress' today.
Mr Thiagarajan along with his supporters joined the Congress at the party headquarters ''Sathyamoorthy Bhavan'', where TNCC President M Krishnasamy, reinducted him into the party after a gap of six years.
Mr Thiagarajan camped in New Delhi and cleared the decks for his re-entry into the Congress. The official communication came yesterday when AICC Treasurer Motilal Vora sent a letter to the TNCC Chief that Party President Sonia Gandhi had approved his readmission in the party.
The Karate exponent, who ''re-surfaced'' on April 13, after he went ''missing'' since October last year after he fell out with AIADMK supremo and Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa, would campaign for the Congress and the DMK-led Democratic Progressive Alliance (DPA) in the May eight assembly polls.
