Puducherry polls: CM Rangasamy files nomination for 16 May election


By

Puducherry: All India NR Congress (AINRC) leader and Puducherry Chief Minister N Rangasamy on Friday filed his nomination papers for the 16 May Assembly polls seeking re-election from the Indira Nagar constituency.

He was elected in the 2011 Assembly polls simultaneously from the Indira Nagar and Kadirkamam constituencies. However, he vacated the Indira Nagar seat and retained Kadirkamam.

AINRC stormed to power in the 2011 Assembly polls in alliance with AIADMK months after it was founded by Rangasamy, who broke away from Congress.

But the alliance did not last long as Rangasamy ditched the AIADMK and formed the ministry with outside support of a lone Independent member.

AINRC is contesting without any alliance this time.
