Kasaragod : Confrontations over State President K Surendran’s leadership rose once again in BJP in Kasaragod. The protest this time calls for action against State Secretary K. Sreekanth, former District President Suresh Kumar Shetty and K Manikantan – the persons, the opposing group alleges, belong to a section protected by Surendran.
The dissenting group became provoked by Surendran’s comment at a press conference held at district committee office saying “ There is no problem whatsoever inside of district BJP. Where are those protesting now gone ?.’
Flex boards with pictures of the district president came garlanded with chappals at Manjeswaram and Hosankadi in Kasaragod. The caption read : “Respects from party workers for attempting to destroy BJP for selfish motives.”
Surendran’s scam phobia
A section comprising leaders and party workers in the district raised protest alleging it was indifference on part of the party that prompted BJP-RSS worker to take his own life. Earlier, the District Vice President, P Rameshan, had resigned his post blaming the party about doing nothing in the cases relating to party workers have been murdered. He also called a press confere3nce demanding action against leaders. Party workers picketed the district committee office and locked it effectively saying that K Surendran is protecting a set of leaders out of fear that corruption involved in central universities might become leaked. .
After warning was issued against any state leader entering into the district, leaders including K Surendran, are keeping away from public events. Incidentally, with threat looming over district entry, Surendran routinely lodges at Kanjangad instead.
