Thiruvananthpuram: Confusion in the Congress has become worse confounded with UDF convener P. P. Thankachan  joining the chorus for supporting the LDF agitation against the centre’s assault on the cooperative sector while KPCC vice-president M. M. Hassan has rallied behind PCC chief V.M. Sudheeran stating that the Congress was not desperate to do that.

The discordant notes came on the eve of the all-party meet called by  Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan here on Monday after former chief minister Oommen Chandy,  Opposition Leader Ramesh Chennithala and the Muslim League called for a joint struggle.  

 

“The poor people in the state have been suffering due to the demonetisation. So the Congress should also join hands with the LDF,”  said Mr Thankachan.
Mr Hassan told reporters at the KPCC office on Sunday that the Congress was  not in a hurry to conduct a joint stir. Muslim League leader P. K. Kunhalikutty, however, said  that there were no issues in the UDF and that the UDF meeting on Monday would discuss the issue.

Mr Sudheeran maintains that a joint agitation will only boost the image of the LDF government and wants separate strikes.
