Former Kerala Pradesh Congress Committee president Mullappally Ramachandran on Thursday said the decision of senior Congress leader K.V. Thomas to address the CPI(M) Party Congress in Kannur was a direct violation of the party’s disciplinary rules.
Speaking to reporters here, Mr. Ramachandran alleged that despite receiving everything from the Congress on a golden platter, Mr. Thomas had tried to put the party into a dilemma on several crucial occasions. “The Congress will not have any issue with his exit,” he remarked.
Mr. Ramachandran asked Mr. Thomas to clarify the reasons behind his disappointment with the party. “He was given supreme positions by sidelining many other eligible persons. He should not forget such considerations,” said Mr. Ramachandran.
