History repeated itself for Congress in Tamil Nadu on Monday when its senior leader G K Vasan broke away from the party to float a new outfit, an action his father G K Moopanar resorted to 17 years ago.

Sulking over the Congress decision to forge electoral truck with AIADMK, Moopanar, a veteran and influential leader of Congress, came out of the party and floated the Tamil Manila Congress (TMC) in 1996.

However, after his death, TMC merged with Congress in 2002.

Vasan, who spent 14 years in Congress, today announced that he would float a new party in Tamil Nadu to bring back the “Kamaraj rule”, another revered leader of the state.
