The CPI's report, it was said, had painted KC(M) as a party with a weak mass base.
Further, the CPM State Committee-approved election review report also found that the party's failure resulted in Kerala Congress (M) chief Jose K Mani's debacle in Pala segment.
The KC(M) was rattled when it was reported that the Kerala Government's counsel orally told the Supreme Court that the 'former finance minister was corrupt'.
Mani, whose party's support base is rooted in the minority Christian community in Central Kerala, also urged the government to implement a special package in case of any loss to any section of minorities due to the court order.
The LDF government is also considering constituting an Agriculture Commission with Mani as its first Chairman. If Mani is accorded a post with cabinet rank, then CPM is likely to take over the Rajya Sabha seat.
The election commission has informed that the election will be held as the current alarming situation improves.
Kerala Congress (M), which demanded two cabinet seats, have been offered one ministerial position, and the post of the Chief Whip with cabinet rank.
KC (M) leader and MP Thomas Chazhikadan fired the first salvo after his party’s high-level committee meeting.
In the four seats, where Jose K Mani's Kerala Congress (M) and P J Joseph’s Kerala Congress clashed head-on, the score is at 2-2.
Irikkur is considered as a safe Congress seat, which was represented by senior Congress leader K C Joseph for 39 years.
