Thiruvananthapuram, Jan 8(BPNS)
Kerala Youth Congress state president, Shafi Parambil MLA was at the receiving end of heavy criticism with leaders cutting across group affiliations stating that the organization was dormant and inactive.
The criticisms came during the state executive meeting of the youth body at Ernakulam on Sunday.
Shafi retorted to the criticism and said that the party state president K. Sudharakan was interfering in the affairs of the organization thus leading to increased group activities. Youth Congress state general secretary and Sudhakaran loyalist, Rijil Makutti said that the KPCC president was forced to intervene as the organization was dormant and inactive for the past several months.
It may be noted that even after several issues cropped up in Kerala against the ruling LDF government, the Youth Congress was inactive. Shafi Parambil owing allegiance to the ‘A’ group of Youth Congress but during the appointment of the leader of the opposition, he had supported, V.D. Satheeshan instead of Ramesh Chennithala who had the support of ‘A’ group leader and former Chief Minister, Oomen Chandy. This led to the ‘A’ and ‘I’ group leaders drifting away from Shafi Parambil who is remaining now not identified with a group in the party.
Sources in the Youth Congress told BPNS that the leaders are sore in that Shafi was not lifting the suspension of state leaders, M.S. Nusur and S.R. Baalu who were suspended due to some issues within the organisation.
