Factional feud in Congress: Mukul Wasnik to visit the State

Thiruvananthapuram: In the view of a High Command ‘conclusion’ that the bitter internal rivalry in the State unit of the Congress is in its peak, AICC general secretary Mukul Wasnik, who is in charge of Kerala, will visit the State to seek a possible solution to the issues.

Wasnik, who will reach here in two weeks, will attend a joint meeting of the government and the KPCC.

Congress president Sonia Gandhi, who wrapped her Kerala visit Monday, had expressed displeasure in the development of the affairs of the party in the State. Gandhi, who met the chief minister Oommen Chandy and PCC president Ramesh Chennithala, had directed them to find a solution as soon as possible.

She also pointed out the development the party could acquire when both the factions functioned unified in the first year of the UDF rule in the State.

The allies in the UDF had on Sunday warned the AICC president of a possible rout in the next Lok Sabha elections if the issues in the Congress are not settled without wasting any more.

They had also suggested that KPCC president Ramesh Chennithala be inducted in the ministry.

According to them, the reason for the UDF government's grievously dented image is the inability of the Congress to put up a united fight against the attacks by the Opposition Left Democratic Front (LDF) and also some sections of the media.
