On Thursday, a group of rebels led by former MP Francis George had walked out of the party accusing its chief K M Mani of functioning unilaterally.
Antony Raju, a former MLA and a member of the party's high-power committee and Dr K C Joseph had left the party along with Francis George.
"Dynastic rule is prevailing in the KC-M with Mani trying to make his son Jose K Mani, MP, as the leader of the party," Antony Raju had said adding, "it is difficult for any Kerala Congress worker with self-respect to continue in the party."
