President of Tamil Nadu Congress Committee and son of late GK Moopanar, GK Vasan achieved what his father could not by becoming a Minister at the Centre.

Vasan was a greenhorn in Tamil Maanila Congress, which he had formed in 1996 against Congress alliance with AIADMK.

42-year-old Vasan was elected to Rajya Sabha from Tamil Nadu after his party merged with Congress.

Appointed as the Working President of the state unit of the party first, he later made it to the Upper House.

Vasan is said to have helped his father when Tamil Manila Congress was formed.
