Chennai, Nov 18: TNCC President M Krishnasamy, convalescing from a stab injury, will visit Sathyamurthy Bhavan, the party headquarters here tomorrow, to take part in the birth anniversary celebrations of former Prime Minister Indira Gandhi.

Mr Krishnasamy was stabbed by an armed gang at Mudukalathur in amanathapuram district on October 30, while he was on his way to attend a party function. He would visit the party office at 1015 hrs tommorw and launch the celebrations, a party release said.

After paying floral tributes to Gandhi and taking national integration pledge on the occasion, Mr Krishnasamy would address the press, the release added. Before arriving to the party office, the Congress leader would garland the former Prime Minister statue near the Elephant gate police station in north Chennai, it said.

Mr Krishnasamy, who was admitted to the Apollo Hospital in Madurai and later shifted to the city, was discharged from the hospital last week. His leader's decision to visit the party office and resume normal work assumes significance in the wake of increased groupism in the party.

A senior party functionary had suggested that he should seek voluntary retirement from politics in view of his ill-health. Meanwhile, the three-member committee, constituted to probe into the stabbing of Youth Congress President Mayura Jayakumar at Sathyamurthy Bhavan on October 11, today obtained the police version of the incident after meeting the City Commissioner of Police Nanjil Kumaran.

Former TNCC President Kumari Anandan, who is heading the panel, told mediapersons that the committee had so far inquired about the incident with about 70 partymen.

They also visited some of the partymen, who were in jail and undergoing treatment at hospitals, he said adding they would soon finalise the report and submit it to the party high command.
