Thiruvananthapuram: KPCC political affairs committee has recommended disciplinary action against senior leader PJ Kurien for harshly criticising MP Rahul Gandhi. It is reported that Thrissur MP TN Prathapan has proposed the committee to take disciplinary action against Kurien.

It was noted that the lacklustre approach during the party membership campaign has led to the party's failure to meet its target. Though the meeting was convened to discuss party re-organisation, several pressing issues were brought to the attention of the political affairs committee.

However, no further debate was held on PJ Kurien's remarks against Rahul Gandhi and the participation of KV Thomas in the CPM party congress. PJ Kurien skipped the meeting despite assuring his attendance earlier. He informed the party that he won't be attending the meeting due to personal reasons. It is observed that he intentionally skipped the meeting over the controversy related to his remarks against Rahul Gandhi.

KPCC is of the view that central leadership should decide on the disciplinary action to be taken against PJ Kurien and KV Thomas.
