CHENNAI/NEW DELHI: Former union minister V Narayanasamy will be the new chief minister of Puducherry. He was elected as the Congress Legislature Party leader at a meeting attended by former Delhi CM Sheila Dikshit and party general secretary Mukul Wasnik.

Narayanasamy had not contested the just-concluded elections and the move to name him as CM is bound to cause tensions among the already fractured Congress in the union territory. Reports suggested that supporters of a party section protested the decision and went on a rampage damaging buses.
