Puducherry: The All India NR Congress here has declared party chief N Rangasmay as the NDA chief ministerial candidate.
A resolution to this effect was adopted at an emergency executive committee meeting of the party held here on Tuesday night.
It may be noted that the BJP was reluctant to announce the name of the chief ministerial candidate even yesterday when the alliance and number of seats for each party were finalised. BJP in-charge of Puducherry Nirmal Kumar Surana answering a question at a press conference yesterday said that the legislature party will decide the chief ministerial candidate.
The meeting vowed to toil hard to make Rangasamy the chief minister for the fourth time and also thanked the BJP and AIADMK leaders who strive hard for the formation of such an alliance.
