After a brief lull, the standoff within the Kerala Congress (B) has gained momentum.

The function, being arranged by supporters of Forest Minister K B Ganesh Kumar here on September 14 to felicitate him, has already attracted opposition from the official faction of the party.

The flex boards and banners erected as part of the function were damaged the other day allegedly by official faction members.

The function is being organised by Ganesh Kumar Janakeeya Vedi and the ad hoc committee formed by Ganesh Kumar’s supporters who met at Pathanapuram in May this year. While Pathanapuram meeting was a show of strength for the Ganesh faction, the supporters are trying to send clear signals to the party through organising a meet in Kottarakkara, the nerve centre of the party. However, the ad hoc committee had seen many persons opting out during the past months.

The notable one was former district president Brijesh Abraham, who returned to the official fold by pledging allegiance to chairman R Balakrishna Pillai.

The party chairman has given clear directives to party cadre not to attend the felicitation function organised by Ganesh Kumar supporters.

However, Ganesh supporters have decided to go ahead with the function. They have filed a complaint with the Kollam Rural SP in connection with the damaging of their flex boards and banners.
