Satheesan should prove he works beyond group politics; restructuring likely in Congress: PT Thomas
Thiruvananthapuram: MLA PT Thomas stated that there is a chance for a total restructuring in the Congress party and the UDF. The decision to appoint V D Satheesan as opposition leader was laudable. It is Satheesan who should prove that he is working beyond group-based conflicts, PT Thomas added.
Satheesan is a person who has proved his talent since the time of student politics. He has good experience both inside and outside the assembly. Satheesan was appointed as part of a change of generation. The high command only can clarify this, Thomas made it clear.
Some leaders had an opinion that Ramesh Chennithala should continue as opposition leader. Also the names of other persons including mine were suggested to the post. But we stand by the decision of the party, PT Thomas said.
"I am one of those who worked for the groups in party in Kerala. But I did not engage in such group-based activities from 2009. I withdrew from this understanding that groupism will lead the party into more trouble," he added.
Satheesan can definitely become a good opposition leader if he could stand firm on his stand and act beyond group politics, PT Thomas further said.
