Talking to reporters here, Mr Vasan said in an effort to revive the name and symbol of the erstwhile Tamil Maanila Congress (TMC), floated by his late father G K Moopanar in 1996 before it was merged with the perent party in 2002, he had approached the Election Commission in Delhi today.

The EC was expected to pronounce its final decision in the next couple of days.

Mr Vasan discussed with the senior members of the party as to when and where the Tiruchi conference should be held in which he would announce the party's name, symbol and unveil the flag.

Among those present at the meeting were his staunch loyalist B S Gnanadesikan, who quit the TNCC Chief post recently leading to appointment of Mr Elangovan, Peter Alphonse, Muktha Srinivasan, Vidiyal Sekar, Kovai Thangam.

Meanwhile, Mr Elangovan told reporters that he was tired of answering questions about those who had quit the Congress party and chartered their own patjh.

He appealed to the media not to ask questions about those who had quit the party.

Expressing doubts on whether Mr Vasan's proposed conference would be held in Trichy. he also wished all the best to the former Congressman if the conference was held as planned.

Appealing to the Congress workers not to visit Chennai to meet him, Mr Elangovan said he would tour all the districts of the state and meet the party workers to strengthen the party ahead of the 2016 Assembly polls. UNI GV vv rss139 NNNN
