 A private agency has been hired to assess the functioning of the Tamil Nadu Congress Committee (TNCC).

Sources say Congress leader Rahul Gandhi has tied up with the private agency to keep a watch on the workings of TNCC. The agency operating, from Bengaluru, has been employed to evaluate the performance and working of the state unit of the party.
 
 A party functionary says that he got a call from a person who introduced himself as AICC representative from Delhi, asking to rate the performance of the state party president Thirunavukkarasar.
 
The caller asked questions regarding the functioning of the unit in the state. Party activists are getting such calls where the private agency is taking feedback. 
 
A senior party leader too confirmed it.  
 
The Congress in the state is ridden with factionalism and there is lack of leadership.
 
The party, which is losing its ground nationally, lost ground in Tamil Nadu long time back.
