Kozhikode: What’s the reason behind bringing Oomen Chandy into Congress’s leadership position instead of Ramesh Chennithala?, asks BJP State President k Surendran. What exactly is Chennithala’s ineligibility? Surendran asks further, adding that, Oomen Chandy who refused any kind of post in the last four years is suddenly propped up into leadership post.
Chennithala has become scapegoat to vote-bank politics, Surendran told reporters at a briefing on upcoming elections. BJP’s national president JP Nadda is due to visit Kerala on 3, 4 February as part of pre-election preparations. He will hold meeting with prominent leaders in Thiruvananthapuram and Thrissur. State Committee will be held on the 29th, said Surendran.
