Kochi: After a hiatus of five months, KPCC political affairs committee will convene in Kochi on Sunday afternoon. Earlier, some members of the committee had expressed displeasure to the state leadership over delay in conducting a meeting.

Following this, a decision to organise a meeting was taken. The meeting will discuss the stand taken by Congress on the government's decision to remove the governor from post of chancellor of state universities.

A section of Congress pointed out that if the party supports the state government in this, it will be interpreted as support for the Left Front. Others viewed that opposing the LDF government's move, the public would interpret it as support for the BJP. The meeting will most likely decide how the party will handle the situation.

Meanwhile, the meeting will also discuss the support received by Shashi Tharoor MP during his state-wide visits. However, the party leadership had earlier viewed that Tharoor had attended events without seeking permission. Therefore, it will be interesting to see whether the party will take disciplinary action against Thiruvananathapuram MP. However, the party will be cautious in its move to punish Tharoor due to the massive support he attained among local party leaders, including MLAs and MPs.

Further, the leaders will also discuss KPCC president K Sudhakaran's RSS remark and CPM state secretary MV Govindan making a pro-Muslim League remark in a recent press conference.
