DCC presidents list: Discussions were incomplete, says Oommen Chandy
Thiruvananthapuram: Veteran Congress leader Oommen Chandy dismissed statements of not holding any proper discussions to select DCC presidents in the state. Even though preliminary talks were held, they were incomplete, he said.
We had given names of others along with our nominees during the primary round of discussions. But no list was given. The discussion concluded saying there would be further talks later, Oommen Chandy added.
When we were in the leadership, we used to consider the steps to be followed in case of any difference of opinion regarding the lists. We also try to make the list acceptable to everyone. I think it was wrong to show the diary during the press meet.
Earlier, Oommen Chandy had publicly responded after the High Command released the list of DCC presidents. He had said that more discussions could have been held and the list could have been made better.
However, KPCC president K Sudhakaran countered this allegation saying discussions were held with Oommen Chandy and Ramesh Chennithala twice. He also showed a diary containing the names suggested by Oommen Chandy. Opposition leader V D Satheesan also reacted in a similar way.
