    Kerala: Rift in Congress-led UDF after setback in local body polls

    The rift in the Congress-led United Democratic Front has come out in the open a day after it faced a major setback in the local body polls in Kerala despite performing well in the Lok Sabha elections in 2019. Posters appeared in the Kerala Pradesh Congress Committee office, seeking to dissolve the district Congress committee. Also, boards have been erected in Kozhikode district by Congress sympathisers criticising the party's state leadership. Though the State Election Commission is expected to announce the final results only by evening, the latest trends issued by the poll body shows that the UDF is leading in 375 grama panchayats, 44 block panchayats, 45 municipalities and three district panchayats. Senior leaders including former union minister P J Kurien, Vadakara MP K Muraleedharan and Kasaragod MP Rajmohan Unnithan, hit out against the party leadership headed by Mullappally Ramachandran and said the organisationalset-up of the Congress party was weak. "It's not right to say that our party lost its base in the state. But it seems like when our political rivals are expanding their voter base, we were unable to do so. That seems like the reason behind our defeat," Unnithan told the media. Senior Congress MP K Sudhakaran also lashed out at the state Congress leadership and said democracy needs to be reinstated in the party. "We need to reinstate democracy inside the party. The party should bring in leaders who can instill confidence in the minds of party workers and the civil society. Then we can save the party," Sudhakaran said. (PTI)
