KOLLAM: With disagreement brewing in the youth faction of the Congress over the ‘senseless’ revamp of District Congress Committees in the state, Youth Congress state vice-president C R Mahesh on Monday lashed out at the state leadership for coming out with jumbo committees. According to him, the KPCC leadership had given scant regard to the existing norms for selection of a DCC member and added the situation was such that the number of members in each DCC in state ranged from 75 to 100.

“With this, the leadership has put themselves in a humiliating position. With such jumbo committees, DCC meetings can never be convened at the offices. One must have to find places like seashore for the same. Ironically, some of the members who found place on the list are even ignorant about the place in which their DCC offices function. It seems KPCC president V M Sudheeran has succumbed to the pressures of group politics,” said C R Mahesh at a press meet here on Monday.

According to him, even though a sub-committee as well as a commission was formed for looking into the reasons behind the defeat at the local body polls, its findings were never taken into consideration by the KPCC. “It’s surprising that change of leadership has not taken place in DCCs across the state. 

The jumbo list itself says that the findings of the sub-committee as well as the commission were given scant regard.
