Thiruvananthapuram: Congress high command demanded the Kerala faction of the party to cut down the number of AICC members proposed from the state. Though Kerala has submitted a list of 68 members to the All India Congress Committee, the high command demanded to reduce the numbers to 41.

As many as 50 Congress activists from Kerala have voting rights even when the actual quota of vote remains 41. The high command has proposed to stick to the actual figures in view of the possibility of an election to the Congress Working Committee in line with the recent presidential polls in the party.

The Kerala faction is attempting to maintain maximum AICC members from the state by shifting the MPs in the list to the quota for parliament members. However, the 68 members proposed in the list and the members in the KPCC general board can attend the plenary session scheduled from February 24 to 26 at Raipur in Chattisgarh.
