Share post:

Kerala’s Thiruvananthapuram MP, Shashi Tharoor, who lost the Congress’ President’s post, has now started projecting himself as the party’s future Chief Minister candidate in the state. Tharoor is now trying to strengthen his position in Kerala, and has started showing that he is a leader, who is acceptable by everybody. He is also working towards expanding his base in northern and central Kerala. But in the wake of all these developments, the challenges faced by the Kerala Congress seem to be augmenting by the day.

Opposition towards the actions of Tharoor has begun. The opposition is being led by former Chief Minister of Kerala, and Kerala leader, Oommen Chandy, former Home Minister of Kerala, Ramesh Chennithala, and Congress General Secretary, KC Venugopal. The clash between the different coteries of the Kerala Congress could be seen during the last week, when the group in opposition to Tharoor, in Kozhikode, blocked the Youth Congress from holding a seminar, revolving around the topic, ‘Sangh Family and the challenges to secularism’, because Shashi Tharoor was invited as the Chief Guest for the same.

Following this, a cultural organization affiliated to the Congress, announced to organize a seminar on the same topic under the its banner, with Tharoor as the Chief Guest, and this development was the talking point in the local media. The news stated that some senior Congress leaders were clipping Tharoor’s wings, and the displeasure of Congress workers in relation to the same also came to the fore.
