Tamil Nadu: Kerala Pradesh Congress Committee political affairs panel expected to be a heated affair | Kochi News

THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: As dissent grows in Congress after suffering its worst defeat in the National Assembly elections, the party’s Political Affairs Committee will meet in the capital on Friday.
At the same time, All India Congress Committee (AICC) has decided to send its leaders to study the reasons for the defeat of the party and find suitable options to replace the current KPCC chairman as well as the leader of the opposition. Top leader Mallikarjun Kharge will arrive here for the key meeting with Heads of State.
However, KPCC Chairman Mullappally Ramachandran said firmly that he was not prepared to take responsibility for the severe beating of the poll and added that it was the collective failure of the party. He communicated the same to the AICC and said that he alone should not be guilty because there were several decision makers who selected the candidates and took care of the campaign.
We learn that he told the high command of the party that he was a victim of group leaders for the defeat of the ballot because he was not ready to accept their demands. Ramachandran informed senior party leaders that he was ready to step down but would not take sole responsibility for the party’s defeat.
The political affairs committee of the KPCC is set to become a heated affair as the party leadership will come under fire from senior leaders. There are also unconfirmed reports that Mullappally Ramachandran and Ramesh Chennithala will declare their decisions at this meeting.
After the proclamation of the election results, the KPCC chairman faced the worst criticism from various sides. According to reports, the AICC also wanted the KPCC chairman to resign on his own, but he was not ready for that.
However, senior party leaders are of the view that a sudden change in leadership will do the party no good and therefore there needs to be a complete top-down overhaul. All these things will be discussed in detail at the meeting of the Political Affairs Committee on Friday.
