Congress workers arrest media persons who were trying to cover faction meeting
Congress workers rough up a group of media personnel who came to report a faction meeting being held at a hotel in Kozhikode on Saturday. The Congress workers did not want any media attention at the meeting.
Amongst the media personnel, a woman journalist also had to bear the impetus of the Congress party workers’ anger.
A journalist who suffered the wort said, “I don’t know why I was roughed up. My chain was broken and my shirt was torn in the pulling and pushing.”
Even though the ‘A’ faction in the Congress party is known after former Defence Minister A K Antony is now led by two-time former Chief Minister Oommen Chandy, with Antony having no role in it.
Ever since the party high command took over the party activities in the faction-ridden Congress in Kerala after the April 6 assembly poll debacle when it appointed K Sudhakaran as the new state party president and V D Satheesan as the Leader of Opposition, the ‘A’ and ‘I’ factions, presently led by senior legislator Ramesh Chennithala, who were once foes have now joined together to oppose Sudhakaran and Satheesan.
However, with Chandy partly incapacitated due to health issues, aberrations have taken place in the ‘A’ faction which in some districts has split further. It was one such faction that met under the leadership of former Kozhikode DCC President U Rajeevan.
The police have already started a probe and in the meanwhile, the Congress state leadership has decided to find out what actually happened.
