Congress mulls regular party meets on the lines of CPM, leaders divided on idea.
The Congress in Kerala had been witnessing a series of resignations and defections following the appointment of Sudhakaran as KPCC chief in the wake of the party's drubbing in the assembly elections.
Congress' Kerala chief, K Sudhakaran and Leader of the Opposition V D Satheesan are learned to have handed over a shortlist of the 14 District Congress Committee presidents to Rahul Gandhi.
Ramachandran, who became the KPCC president in 2018, did not get enough time at the helm as expected.
If several names crop up, the high command is unlikely to impose its nominee for the post.
INTUC found that the appointment of Chandy after the debacle at the polls to the local bodies was merely cosmetic treatment.
Former chief minister Oommen Chandy's statement that he is unaware of any move for appointing a new chief reflects the common refrain of the local leadership that the high command has been keeping them out of the loop.
After the Congress-led-UDF had to settle for just 41 seats of the total 140 in the April 6 Assembly polls, a group of leaders and workers have been pressing for a complete makeover of the party's leadership structure.
The popular sentiment in the Congress now is against the usual cosmetic changes, but for a total revamp from the booth level to the top leadership.
The majority opinion was to take into confidence those who would be dropped from the leadership position before a revamp.
