KC Venugopal intervened
The groups had alleged that KC Venugopal was interfering in the appointment of Youth Congress state spokespersons. It is reported that the decision to appoint Thiruvanchoor Radhakrishnan’s son Arjun Radhakrishnan as the spokesperson was frozen due to opposition from the group. Officials alleged that state president Shafi Parampil did not know about the appointment of state spokespersons.
Arjun follows in the footsteps of Chandy Oommen
Arjun Radhakrishnan is the son of a third leader who came to politics after his father and sought political future at the central level. Earlier, AK Antony’s son Anil Antony and Oommen Chandy’s son Oommen Oommen entered politics through the Center.
Thiruvanchoor did not intervene
At the same time, Thiruvanchoor Radhakrishnan clarified that he would not comment on the appointment of his son as the Youth Congress spokesperson. The removal of his son from office is an internal affair of the Youth Congress. It is not appropriate to respond to this as it is a subject involving the son as well. Thiruvanchoor told the media that the controversy was part of an attempt to link him. The party leadership will respond on the issue. He said he did not interfere in his son’s appointment.
Appointment is based on merit
Arjun Radhakrishnan says appointment of Youth Congress state spokespersons is on merit basis. The selection was made after conducting an interview. Arjun also said that he rejects allegations that children are political. He said this in an interview with Manorama News.
‘The Youth Congress held a Young India Ka Ball competition at the national level. The applications were submitted online. All the videos in it had to be recorded and sent. He was selected after being selected and then trained. It was an event that lasted for a few days, ”said Arjun. Arjun said he had been active in the Youth Congress for a long time.
Children are the most opposed to politics
Arjun Radhakrishnan said his children would be the first to oppose politics. He does not believe in such an ideology. Giving up a position without losing someone else’s position will work for it. “It simply came to our notice then. My father did not have to go ahead because he did not get my place.
