Thiruvananthapuram: Congress is facing an unprecedented crisis in Kerala due to the ongoing tussle between senior leaders and groups owing to alleged differences with party leadership under KPCC president K Sudhakaran.
Meanwhile, MP K Muraleedharan, a vocal critic of the state leadership, has gained the support of 'A' group and 'I' group led by Ramesh Chennithala. He alleged that state leaders are not discussing party matters with them.
Further, the move from KPCC state leadership to seek the high command's help in taking action against MPs MK Raghavan and K Muraleedharan for their recent controversial remarks has irked the senior party leaders. Ramesh Chennithala and MM Hassan have openly criticized the move.
Since Raghavan and Muraleedharan are AICC members, the group thinks it is up to AICC to recommend disciplinary action against them. Meanwhile, Muraleedharan stated he would not contest elections by saying that those who try to silence others will face the consequences.
At the same time, the high command is placed in a tough spot. Earlier, the senior leaders were unhappy with state leadership nominating a list of 60 KPCC members without holding discussions.
