Thiruvananthapuram : Fight between former and current Opposition leader reaches new level with K Sudhakaran descending on the scene questioning Ramesh Chennithala over making media comments sidelining VD Satheeshan, Incidentally, Chennithala’s intrusion has caused much irk inside the party as well.
Arguments inside are also rife over K Sudhakaran’s refusal to assign a organisational charge to Kodikunnil Suresh and further, not appointing KC Joseph as Working President in place of demised PT Thomas. With animosities getting out of hand, a meeting of KPCC leaders has been convened coming Friday. The meeting also comes amidst heightened differences over appointments of KPCC Secretaries and DCC Presidents.
New dissent equations are bound to reflect at the upcoming executive meeting. And, K Sudhakaran is focused on to somehow carry the reorganisation through. The plan is to trim down Jumbo List submitted by various districts.
Even allies are scratching their heads over Chennithala’s remark of bringing no-confidence motion in the Assembly. Amid the tensions, Kodikunnil Suresh hit back on what he termed was negligectful stance on part of state leadership. “Accommodation” is the only feature of the Working President post currently, said Kodikunnil.
Meanwhile, Oomen Chandy raised demand that Working President vacancy following demise of PT Thomas be filled. Sudhakaran however is of the view that the Working President post is unnecessary.
The Sore Point : When Opposition Leader VD Satheesan avoided detailed response on Lokayukta controversy, Chennithala called a press conference of his own giving out comments on the issue. The overstepping has understandably infuriated VD Satheesan. Even so, according to sources, there took place a Sudakaran-Chennithala meeting before calling of the said conference.
