Thiruvananthapuram: Kerala Congress (B) chairman R Balakrishna Pillai on Wednesday said that he had been assured by the UDF of the minister post of K B Ganesh Kumar.
Pillai informed the party men about this at a leadership meet of the party held here.
While talking to reporters after the meet, Pillai said that the UDF did not need to discuss the issue of Ganesh Kumar. “It’s up to the KC (B) to take a decision on the matter,” he said.
“He (Ganesh) should have been made minister five months back itself. He wouldn’t have resigned (from the minister post) if I was with him that time,” said Pillai. “The party needs a cabinet minister, not any other post with cabinet rank,” he added.
He also warned the UDF of dire consequences in the elections if Ganesh is not given minister post back.
Meanwhile, the meet appointed Ganesh Kumar vice-chairman of the KC (B).
