The statement of the Kerala Congress Committee Secretary comes after two senior leaders of the party were suspended for criticizing the party’s selection of the district presidents in the media.
Kerala Congress secretary PS Prasanth on Monday wrote to party leader Rahul Gandhi against AICC general secretary KC Venugopal. Blaming him for the party’s fall in several states including Punjab and Chhattisgarh.
“Since he took the charge, we could witness the destruction of the party in states including Goa. Karnataka, MP, Rajasthan, Punjab, Chhattisgarh, etc,” Prasanth said in his letter.
However, few hours after the letter, Party’s state unit chief K Sudhakaran said Prasanth was expelled from the party for challenging the Congress high command and making wild allegations, according to an input from news agency ANI.
Prashant’s letter further reads, “Congress workers in Kerala are doubtful whether his actions to collapse the party are in accordance with the collusion he made with BJP.”
The central leadership of the Congress is presently facing internal bickering within the Punjab and Chhattisgarh units.
Party’s Kerala unit also witnessed a factional feud recently over the selection of the new District Congress Committee (DCC) presidents.
Kerala Pradesh Congress Committee (KPCC) president K Sudhakaran in a statement said former MLA K Sivadasan Nair. Former KPCC general secretary K P Anil Kumar was “temporarily suspended” from the party. “They both showed lack of discipline and made public statements through the media related to the reconstitution of DCCs,”. The statement said.
The All India Congress Committee (AICC) had on Saturday evening published the list of 14 DCCs in the state, following which the disgruntled leaders criticized the decision on TV shows.
