Oommen Chandy has been named as chairman of the Congress committee which will oversee the election.

The Congress High Command has also given Chandy the responsibility of developing strategies for the polls. Congress is of the view that Oommen Chandy being inactive has adversely affected Congress’ performance in the LSG polls.
