Mani gives George enough rope, Joseph sticks to guns

The problems in Kerala Congress(M) have remained unresolved as KC.

Thiruvananthapuram: The problems in Kerala Congress(M) have remained unresolved as KC (M) Chairman K.M. Mani has given a long rope to chief whip P.C. George, prompting warring leader P.J. Joseph to skip the party meeting. However, Joseph said a meeting will be called again on November 27.

Sources told Deccan Chronicle that even before the meeting started, Mani announced that action will not be taken against George which upset the Joseph camp. When reporters met Mani, he admitted that there were problems in the party.

“Problems are quite natural which can be solved through talks,” he said. However, Joseph maintained that it was due to his inconvenience that the meeting was postponed. He remained tight-lipped when asked whether he had sought the removal of George as chief whip.

Francis George told Deccan Chronicle that they were firm in their stand against George. Strangely, George told Deccan Chronicle that there was no meeting to discuss his ouster from the party or from his official post.

“How could someone discuss an issue when a meeting was not there at the first instance? If there was an issue, we would have discussed it,” he said. This is the second time in one month that the meeting was postponed much to the displeasure of the Joseph camp.
