KPCC rejig sparks dissent in state Congress
Dominant groups of KPCC chief Ramesh Chennithala and Chief Minister Oommen Chandy are unhappy over the decision to make O Abdurahiman Kutty, a nominee of Congress spokesperson and Thrissur MP P C Chacko, the DCC president of Thrissur.
In Kannur, K Sudhakaran, MP, has ensured that his nominee K Surendran was made the DCC chief. Meanwhile, senior Congress leaders have threatened to float a parallel outfit in Thrissur. On Wednesday night, Chacko’s office was stoned.
Loyalists of the former chief minister late K Karunakaran wanted A Balram to be the Thrissur DCC chief. In Kannur, ‘A’ group nominee Satheeshan Pacheni, a strong contender for the post of Kannur DCC chief, lost in the lobbying of K Sudhakaran. Party sources said there is a move to make Balram and Pacheni state general secretaries.
