Accordingly months ahead of the Lok Sabha election, the All India Congress Committee on Saturday appointed former Cuddalore Lok Sabha MP KS Alagiri as its Tamilnadu President. Reportedly Alagiri has replaced S Thirunavukkarasar, who was appointed to the post in September 2016 and in addition to this, four working Presidents have also been appointed.

Meanwhile in a statement, KC Venugopal, the AICC general secretary, who announced the appointment of Alagiri and others stated, “Honorable Congress President has approved the proposal for appointment of President and four Working Presidents of Tamil Nadu PCC. The party appreciates contribution of outgoing TNCC president S Thirunavukkarasar.” Furthermore Alagiri emphasized that his appointment did not reflect a lack of trust in the outgoing TNCC chief.

He said “With LS polls a few months away, AICC president Rahul Gandhi has changed the PCC chiefs in several states and Tamilnadu is among them”. Moreover Alagiri represented the Cuddalore constituency in the 14th General election, and has also been MLA for two terms and had graduated from Annamalai University and belongs to Cuddalore district in north Tamilnadu. DMK sources stated "There are a lot of internal problems with the party and several factions were against him. We know very little about Alagiri, just that he was earlier in the P Chidambaram camp”.
