Thiruvananthapuram: The intra-party wrangling among Congress leadership in Kerala took a nasty turn after a section of party MPs informed the High Command that K Sudhakaran has failed as KPCC President. The move came from the party leaders ahead of the 2024 Lok Sabha elections.

Meanwhile, it is learnt that majority of Kerala MPs from Congress have opined that Sudhakaran should step down from office. The party leadership claimed that Sudhakaran had failed in discharging his duties as KPCC president and it would be wise to replace him before the crucial Lok Sabha polls. However, senior leaders, including K Muraleedharan, have backed Sudhakaran.

Critics claim that Sudhakaran's absence during key events in state politics due to ill health had adversely affected the party. Further, the delay in KPCC reorganisation also created an unfavourable opinion about the KPCC President. Recently, Congress came under immense scrutiny after Sudhakaran made a pro-RSS remark which irked coalition partner Muslim League.

Meanwhile, it is indicated that the party high command is unlikely to bring a new face due to the crucial Lok Sabha elections in 2024. Further, Sudhakaran's lack of interest in contesting for a Lok Sabha seat also reveals his interest in continuing in state politics.
