A banner erected by the Youth Congress committee of Ponmundam at Vailathur, near Tirur, pledging support to Left Democratic Front candidate in Ponnani, V. Abdul Rahman, has caused much embarrassment to Congress leaders from the region.

Although the Congress and the Indian Union Muslim League (IUML) sought to play it down, describing it as a solitary incident best to be ignored, the poster became the talk of the town bringing to light the uneasiness between the IUML and some hardcore sections of the Congress.

In social media

Congress leaders intervened and removed the poster but not before it got publicity in the social media.

Mr. Abdul Rahman, a former member of the Kerala Pradesh Congress Committee (KPCC), is described in the banner as having an inseparable bond with the Congress youth.
