Thiruvananthapuram: The Congress high command is unhappy that the discord among party leaders in Kerala reached the AICC plenary session in Raipur. The list given by the leadership to nominate 60 members to the KPCC created more trouble.

Even before the plenary session, the A and I groups came out against the list suggested by the state leadership. Following this, the central leadership refused to approve the list. But later, the members nominated on the list were allowed to participate in the plenary session.

The A and I groups stated that K Sudhakaran and VD Satheesan were taking decisions unilaterally without consulting senior leaders. Ramesh Chennithala expressed the same opinion in Raipur.

Satheesan hit out by saying members cannot be appointed after taking a list from the group managers. Kodikunnil Suresh and PC Vishnunadh also stated publicly that no discussions were held for the appointment of KPCC members.

The high command then asked party leaders from Kerala to reach a consensus at the plenary session venue itself. Sudhakaran, Satheesan, Chennithala and MM Hasan were to hold a meeting in the presence of AICC general secretary Tariq Anwar.

This meeting got postponed to the next day at the last minute. However, being the closing day of the session the slated meeting did not happen.

Meanwhile, efforts are being made to reorganise the party at the grassroots level as Lok Sabha elections are near. According to A and I groups, if the KPCC leadership is proceeding without consultation, then there is no point in reaching a consensus over the reorganisation.
