Senior leader A K Antony and Mukul Wasnik would be present at the meeting,’’ said Sudheeran.  He said that issues related to Kerala Congress would also be discussed in the meeting. The senior leaders were summoned after majority of the leaders in the state had sought a revamp right from the block level. Rahul had already held discussions with more than 80 leaders from the state and heard their views on strengthening the party after the poll debacle.    Even though a majority of the leaders belonging to the two factions was for a change of the state party chief, the High Command, especially Antony, is for retaining Sudheeran. 

The Congress in the state has been hearing dissenting voices after the party lost to the Left Front in the Assembly elections. Most of the leaders were of the opinion that the party in the state was in deep crisis and that the High Command should intervene.
