S Ve Shekher join Congress

Unattached MLA and former AIADMK leader S Ve Shekher said he would join Congress to give the party a boost ahead of the upcoming Tamil Nadu Assembly elections.

Shekher, elected from Mylapore constituency in Chennai, had recently met party general secretary Rahul Gandhi before deciding to join Congress.

Shekher, axed from the Jayalalithaa-led AIADMK in 2009, said he had met Gandhi two months back and would join the party “under instructions” from Union Minister Ghulam Nabi Azad, who is in-charge of party affairs in the state.
