Kochi: There are reports that one faction of the BJP is unsatisfied over the activities of Union Minister of State for External Affairs V Muraleedharan in connection with the Vande Bharat Mission to repatriate NRIs stranded in foreign countries due to COVID-19 pandemic.

The Krishnadas faction raised several allegations in the BJP core committee meeting held on Saturday that the union minister's office is functioning in a way that causes disgrace to the party and its leaders.

They also alleged that the suggestions made by the BJP leaders regarding the NRI repatriation is not fulfilled, but only decisions of Muslim League and Congress are realized. All senior leaders except for C K Padmanabhan attended the meeting.

The Krishnadas faction mainly alleged that instead of BJP, Congress has influence in the minister's office. A Congress woman has been appointed in the office and other parties are getting their demands fulfilled with her help, they alleged. Also, there was allegations that an accused in the DRDO corruption case visits the minister's office frequently.

The leaders also expressed dissatisfaction over Muraleedharan's criticism against the state government. When the union minister tried to make a controversy over the central government's compliments to the state government, it resulted in a huge shame for the Centre, they alleged.

The meeting also discussed about dividing duties to the leaders in order to focus on the strongholds of the party in the local body polls and making interventions in the central leadership to fill the vacancies in board and corporation levels.
