New Delhi: Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Sobha Surendran has expressed displeasure on not being included in the core committee of the party. She said that even though she was personally hurt after being excluded from the committee, she was still part of the core committee in the minds of the people of Kerala.
Talking to reporters in New Delhi, she said, “As an individual, it hurts alot for not being a part of the core committee. But there is a core committee inside the houses of the people of the state that includes the father, mother and the children. That is the core committee of the people. It decides what post should be given to each individual in their hearts. For the past 28 years, I have worked in front of the people of Kerala and I believe that I will be a part of their core committee.”
Reacting to the inclusion of former Rajya Sabha MP and actor Suresh Gopi in the core committee, she said, “I am a sister who is happily waiting for Suresh Gopi to join the core committee.”
She further said the allegation that she is staying away from party activities was not true, adding that the party president is the one who should assign activities.
