P R Shivashankar removed from BJP's news debate panel for mocking K Surendran
Thiruvananthapuram: PR Shivashankar, who mocked BJP State Secretary K Surendran through social media, was removed from the party panel for news debates. Earlier this week, Shivashankar published a Facebook post criticising Surendran after he was removed from the revamped list of office-bearers.
Shivashankar, a supporter of Krishnadas, was a strong BJP spokesperson in the talk shows and debates. However, he was not a popular figure among the faction that supports Muraleedharan.
Shivashankar's response to Sandeep Vachaspati's social media posts mocking Neymar's lousy actions in Copa America football has also opened up further drift inside the party. Without directly referring to BJP State secretary, Shivashankar mocked the leadership and called for the top brass in the party to resign on personal grounds, before the party acts on them.
