Benny Behanan Openly Slams Congress Block Reorganisation

Web Desk(Tvm)Updated: Monday Jun 5, 2023

Kochi : The Block Congress President list announced as of now contravenes unifying efforts inCongress, said MP Benny Behanan. This reorganisation is one in disregard for  Oomen Chandy’s line of  thinking, said Behanan.

If there be plan to form  a new group, the old groups will come alive, said A Group leader, Benny Behanan, speaking with reporters in Kochi. Asked if he would complain to KPCC president, Behanan responded saying “That would be unnecessary.”

Behnan’s outburst  comes in the wake of the Opposition Leader grabbing all Block President posts from A Group in his home constituency of Paravur. Of the 28 posts in the district, 12 were spoken for as being assigned to the A Group. However, Satheesan ended up filling all of them with his loyalists. The A Group is in deep resentment of this.

A Group had effectively blocked Satheesan’s efforts to take the Thrikkakara Blokc and swap it with Vytilla Block.  With Uma Thomas too putting in strong dissent  the announcement of presidents for Thrikkakara and Vytilla blocs have been postponed, at least for now. A Group boycotted the Ernakulam DCC Executive meeting on Saturday and held a secret meeting of their own.
