- K Sudhakaran against Oommen Chandy and Chennithala.
- Do not insist on controlling the party till the end of your life.
- The thinking of one or two leaders cannot stop the growth of the party.
Sudhakaran reacted sharply to the question whether senior leaders Oommen Chandy and Ramesh Chennithala regretted not cooperating with the state Congress leadership. He also hinted that there was poison in the non-cooperation of senior leaders. The KPCC president said that he had told the high command leaders about this.
The extent to which the views of senior leaders are embraced by party workers can be seen by examining the views of party workers who come across on social media. One or two leaders think that in a democratic political movement the arrival or growth of a leader cannot be prevented. Sudhakaran clarified that for me, such a situation has never existed in the Congress.
Oommen Chandy and Ramesh Chennithala withdrew from the UDF meeting amid continuing differences with the state leadership over the KPCC reorganization. The main complaint of the state leadership is that two senior leaders are holding back the activities of the party. UDF convener MM Hasan had said that he did not know the reason why the two did not attend the crucial meeting. Earlier, KPCC president K Sudhakaran had said that the differences between Oommen Chandy and Ramesh Chennithala were natural and there were no problems in the party.
At the same time, he will not approach the High Command against the stand of the senior leaders but will inform AICC General Secretary Tariq Anwar about the developments in the state Congress. Only if the groups ignore the instructions given by Tariq Anwar will the state leadership strengthen its stand before the High Command.
Earlier in the day, Tariq Anwar had said that he did not know that senior state Congress leaders Oommen Chandy and Ramesh Chennithala had left the UDF meeting. There are no differences of opinion between the leaders. Everything is done in consultation with them. He said he would talk to leaders if he was dissatisfied.
