Muslim League to discuss Assembly election debacle on Nov 20

Fahmi Ramani

Malappuram: Six months after the announcement of Kerala Assembly election results, the enquiry committees of the Indian Union Muslim League will submit report on the election debacle by November 20.

State office-bearers and MLAs of the party will meet on November 20 at the League Office in Kozhikode to discuss the report.

The party, which used to have a high 'strike rate' in the Assembly elections, contested 27 seats. However, they lost in 12 seats. The meeting held on October 2 at Manjeri constituted 12 committees to study about the debacle. They were asked to submit the report in 15 days. However, it got delayed due to Assembly sessions. The committees also missed the second deadline, which was October 30.

There was already opposition within the party for the delay in discussing the election results. A group of leaders, especially from the Youth League, had revolted against League strongman P K Kunhalikutty for his resignation from Lok Sabha. The party then formed a committee headed by state general secretary P M A Salam. The current committees were formed based on the suggestion of the committee of Salam.

Another 10-member sub-committee that prepared the report on future programmes will also attend the meeting.

The Muslim League leadership has already declared that they will take action against the defaulters, especially in four constituencies where the party won in 2016 but lost to LDF in 2021. They are Azhikode (KM Shaji), Kuttiady (Parakkal Abdulla), Kozhikode South (Noorbina Rasheed) and Kalamaseerry (V E Abdul Gafoor).
