THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: A section of Congress leaders feels KSU should have taken its protest across the state, instead of confining to the state capital, as the Public Service Commission's loss of credibility affects all job seekers.

On Saturday, the Youth League had held collectorate protests across the State. When KSU president K. M. Abhijith, who belongs to the A-group, launched his indefinite fast before the secretariat six days ago, group politics had come to the forefront.

 

Immediately, Opposition leader Ramesh Chennithala fielded his 'I' group loyalist, general secretary Nabeel Naushad to join Mr Abhijith. But to everyone's surprise, Kannur MP K. Sudhakaran too decided to field his loyalist, vice-president Basheer Pallivayalil.

A senior leader said Mr Sudhakaran wanted to send out a strong message to Oommen Chandy and Mr Chennithala that he too has a following. “Mr Sudhakaran is also emerging as a strong leader with support among youth leaders,” he told DC, adding the KSU should spread the protest across the state.

 

If the Youth Congress has got a president and a vice-president, KSU has four vice-presidents, and that's where senior leaders try to show their supremacy.

When the Youth Congress president, Dean Kuriakose MP, holds an indefinite fast, Chennithala loyalist C. R. Mahesh, the vice-president, will accompany him.  One more ‘A’ group loyalist, R. Roshin, the KSU general secretary, is also accompanying Mr Abhijith.  The remaining three vice-presidents, Sne-ha S. Nair, V. P. Abdul Rash-eed and Rinku Padipur-ayil, are coordinating the fast.

 

Now senior group leaders are keen to chalk out a solution to end the fast as they are aware that Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan is not going to order a judicial enquiry into the PSC answer sheet leakage.
