P.C. Thomas, the beleaguered chairman of the Kerala Congress (KC) faction owing allegiance to the Left Democratic Front (LDF), has called an emergency meeting of the State committee of his party for December 21 to discuss the issues emerging out of the rebellion in his party.

In a press note posted on his Facebook account, Mr. Thomas dubbed the meeting held here on Saturday, which had ‘‘ousted’’ him, as the ‘‘biggest joke’’ of the year and said it was taken by 30 people who had no connection with the people.

He was in New Delhi inaugurating an agitation against the fall in prices of natural rubber and cardamom, when a set of people who never relate to people’s problems ousted me, Mr. Thomas said.
