As the state council of the Indian Union Muslim League(IUML) would meet in Kozhikode on Sunday to elect the new state committee, party leaders are learnt to have come to an agreement in principle to drop one of the two state general secretary posts in the party.
Sources said if things go as per the plan, K P A Majeed, one among the present general secretaries, will continue and the present state committee will be retained.
Senior party leader and MP E T Mohammed Basheer, the other state general secretary, has already communicated his dissent to the party leadership over maintaining two state general secretary posts. He also said that he would be stepping down from the post of general secretary due to other commitments.
“The creation of two general secretary posts in the state committee was only an adhoc arrangement in the wake of requirements of the party then. However, maintaining two such posts is not good for the system and I have already conveyed this to the party leadership. So, doing away with one state general secretary post will be a natural decision,” he said.
Both Majeed and Basheer were made general secretaries when P K Kunhalikutty stepped down from the postlast year.
