Thiruvananthapuram: The efforts of Congress leadership in Kerala to pacify party leader VM Sudheeran, who recently resigned from the political affairs committee (PAC) seems to not yield results as the senior leader relinquished his All India Congress Committee (AICC) membership on Monday.
The discontent brewing inside the Congress in Kerala had spilt out into the open after the party’s organization rejig was carried out following the drubbing suffered by United Democratic Front (UDF) in the last Kerala Assembly polls.
Sudheeran, who had stayed away from factionalism and group politics in Kerala for long, however, is yet to react to media regarding his decision.
Sources close to him pointed out that he was not happy with various decisions taken by the new leadership regarding the organisational restructure of the party and the way the announcement was made by leadership to make Congress a semi-cadre party.
Sources also said he had sent a letter to Congress president Sonia Gandhi and AICC regarding the issues in the party in the state, prior to his resignation.
