Kochi: AICC General Secretary who is in charge of Kerala, Tariq Anwar, will fly to the state on Saturday in the wake of the poll debacle faced by UDF in the local body elections and the subsequent fallout in the party.
Tariq will arrive in Kerala on December 26 and will take part in the political affairs committee meeting on December 27. MLAs, MPs and DCC presidents will also attend the meeting. Various meetings and committees of local leadership have been convened ahead of Tariq’s arrival.
The changes in organisational level will be made based on the report submitted by Tariq to the high command. As per the present situation, the posts of KPCC president and UDF Convenor are to remain unchanged. The high command is considering a reshuffle at the DCC levels.
Tariq Anwar on Saturday had urged party leaders criticising the state party leadership, after the civic polls debacle, to desist from airing their differences publicly.
"I earnestly hope that our leaders will realise that by trading charges against each other, they are giving strength to the opponents. The need of the hour is to fight the opposition," he had said in a statement.
Anwar had urged all congress leaders in the state to desist from airing their differences publicly and instead take up their grievances at the party forum. Their complaint will be looked into and resolved, he had said.
