Congress president Sonia Gandhi on Monday directed Chief Minister Oommen Chandy and KPCC president Ramesh Chennithala to bury the hatchet and work in unison so as to pave a smooth road for the government and the party, with immediate focus on reaping maximum gains in the forthcoming Lok Sabha polls.

The diktat was passed by Sonia after a close scrutiny of the concerns voiced by coalition partners the other day on the squabbles in the state Congress unit and on the basis of impression gathered after a one-to-one with select individual leaders of the party at Raj Bhavan here.

Sonia, who had given a patient hearing to all, was non-committal to the pleas of anyone. Yet, she gave a feeling that the party high command will address the issues.

If the coalition partners were peeved at the way the Congress’ way of functioning in the state, the ‘A’ and ‘I’ groups in the party vied with each other in hurling complaints against the other on Monday.
