KPCC to form disciplinary committee

The Congress in Kerala decided to form a disciplinary committee to take action against those workers and leaders who violate party discipline.

KPCC President Mullappally Ramachandran said opinions should be expressed only in the the party platform.

His comments assume significance as some leaders,including K. Muraleedharan, MP, and Lathika Subhash had publicly voiced their opinion on various matters, including the recent reconstitution of the Kerala Pradesh Congress Committe.

"The party will form a disciplinary committee. The workers have the party platform to express their opinion. We will not tolerate any violation of the party discipline. If any worker or any senior leader violates it, we will take strong action," Ramachandran told.

Muraleedharan had earlier criticised the KPCC re- constitution following the appointment of Mohan Sankar, son of former Chief Minister R. Sankar, as one of the 12 Vice Presidents.

He had said Sankar was a former BJP candidate who had unsuccessfully contested an election.

Lathika Subhash, Mahila Congress President, on Monday came down against the re-constitution excercise, saying there was just one woman representative in the committee.
