Thrissur: District Congress Committee general secretary C. S. Srinivas has urged the Congress president Sonia Gandhi to immediately fill up the post of the Thrissur DCC president. In a memorandum submitted to Congress president Sonia Gandhi, Mr. Srinivas said the post had been vacant in the Thrissur DCC in the past 14 months. “In the Lok Sabha elections, the LDF led in seven Assembly constituencies in the district though the trend had favoured the Congress. In the previous panchayat elections, the Congress won only in seven out of 87 panchayats and a municipality. The LDF won more than 90 per cent of the seats. Though there is a pro-Congress trend in panchayats now as elections draw near, there is no coordinated pre-poll work in the party,” he wrote.
