The Congress leader paid a rare compliment to the chief minister before urging his party leaders to adopt new ways to defeat CPM and BJP in Kerala.
Sudhakaran said there was no need of Tariq Anwar, the AICC general secretary in charge of Kerala, to come to the state for reconciliatory talks now.
The Leader of the Opposition said that a 'little bit of bitterness in a relationship will eventually make the bonding stronger'.
Thiruvanchoor Radhakrishnan was referring Ramesh Chennithala's recent remark that the new state leadership cannot move forward without consulting Oommen Chandy who is an AICC general secretary.
The simmering tensions within the Kerala unit of the Congress continued to play out on Friday with senior factional leaders reiterating their charges against the new power axis.
Party veterans Oommen Chandy and Ramesh Chennithala, who head the A and I factions respectively, said the DCC presidents were appointed without enough discussions in the state.
KPCC general secretary K P Anilkumar and former MLA K Sivadasan Nair were suspended for questioning the manner in which new DCC presidents were selected.
The state leadership has handed over the final list of all 14 new District Congress Committee presidents to party president Sonia Gandhi.
The Congress high command has not yet spoken to former Chief Minister Oommen Chandy and former Opposition Leader in the Assembly Ramesh Chennithala regarding the list.
The 77-year-old Congress leader’s plan is to avail a loan from the MLAs’ housing fund to construct a residence, which will also have an MLA’s office next to it.
