THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: KPCC president Mullapally Ramachandran’s move to revamp the party has been stalled by the three working presidents, M. I. Shahnavas, K. Sudhakaran and Kodikunnil Suresh, who have asked him to continue with the existing committee till the Lok Sabha elections are over next year. They have asked him not to disturb the existing committee to prepare for the elections.
Mr Mullapally had said earlier that a new committee will ensure the speedy revamp of the party. But talks on this are yet to take place though the political affairs committee has met twice.
The three working presidents have been entrusted with three zones and all the 21 PAC members have been given charge of various districts.
A senior Congress MLA told Deccan Chronicle that a number of party workers and leaders from across the state had been meeting Mr Mullapally and requesting him not to go for massive changes.
“The working presidents have told Mullapally that it would be ideal to continue with the existing committee in view of the coming Lok Sabaha elections,” said the MLA.
The majority of PAC leaders have not evinced any interest in the party revamp. Instead, the KPCC leadership will form booth and mandalam committees across the state.
Mr Mullapally has kick-started his visits to all the DCCs to take stock of the situation and asked the DCC presidents to form booth and mandalam committees by October 25. Congress leaders feel that the party would be revamped after the general elections.
