Thiruvananthapuram : Resentment is thick inside state Congress, with Groups and leaders refusing to even come to the table on topic of appointment of KPCC secretaries and DCC office bearers. KPCC President K Sudhakaran is back from Delhi with Jumbo List for secretaries. It is however unclear if the High Command has approved of it.
In Delhi, K Sudhakaran held talks only with KC Venugopal - the AICC Gen Secretary who is also in charge of organisation. The plan was to appoint 50 members as secretaries. The draft list contains numbers far greater thoug. , K Sudhakaran’s plan to make appointments before the Returning Officer assumed charge, has fallen apart. Senior leader, Oomen Chandy and Ramesh Chennithala are yet to submit their lists.
Groups have turned their backs on DCC reorganisation as well. Most districts hdo not have their lists ready although K Sudhakaran’s ultimatum required all to submit them by 5th Feb latest. Groups are playing the ‘discontent card’ to prolong reorganisation.
Meanwhile, discord is intense between KPCC President K Sudhakaran and Opposition Leader VD Satheesan. No talks have been held yet with either Oomen Chandy or Ramesh Chennithala. Oomen Chandy, who’s leaving for Goa, and Chennithala to Tamil Nadu, will both return on the 10th. Groups are perturbed by the fact that no discussions have been held with Oomen Chandy and Chennithala.
K Sudhakaran is aiming to just collect lists from districts and then go about appointing steadfast supporters. However, Groups are equally braced up to prevent that from happening.
