KOTTAYAM: The Socialist Kerala Congress, a splinter group of the former Kerala Congress (S) that has since merged with the Kerala Congress (M), will merge with the M.P. Veerendrakumar-led Janata Dal (S).Sunny Thomas, president, and Anil Kattakkada, general secretary, of the party said smaller parties were finding it difficult to make effective interventions in people's problems.
