New Delhi: The Congress High Command is unsatisfied over the debacle faced by UDF in the local body election in Kerala. A suggestion has arisen that reorganisation in district level is necessary as there was lapses on the part of PCC and DCC leadership.
The candidate selection on the basis of factions without considering chances of victory resulted in the debacle. The issues between leaders crossed the lines, it is assumed.
The local body poll was held when there were allegations against the Kerala government. But Congress failed to make a favourable result out of it. AICC general secretary Tariq Anwar handed over a report in this regard to the High Command. Following this, they reached the conclusion.
The PCC leaders failed to take advantage of the political atmosphere. The candidate selection was based on the preference of factions. There was difference of opinion regarding alliance with Welfare Party. Minority votes were leaked especially in central Kerala, the High Command evaluated.
Congress has already lost power in many states. The party has hopes in Kerala and Tamil Nadu. However, the poll debacle is really disturbing. Rahul Gandhi will hold meeting with the state leaders ahead of the assembly election.
