If Mullapalli Ramachandran becomes the KPCC president, then the party's situation is nothing less than a sinking boat, depict the new posters making the rounds.

If Mullapalli Ramachandran becomes the KPCC president, then the party's situation is nothing less than a sinking boat, depict the new posters making the rounds. The posters depict as if Congress is being led by anti-social elements.

UDF activists are not happy with the decision taken by their leaders about supporting Kerala Congress leaders for nominations in the Rajya Sabha. Protesting against the allotment of Rajya Sabha seat to Kerala Congress (M), unidentified people expressed their anger by keeping symbolic coffins with photographs of former Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan and opposition leader Ramesh Chennithala.

The discussions regarding this were held in the KPCC office. Despite criticism against the leaders who took the decision, there is a possibility of suspension of those found guilty on circulating the posters slamming Congress, after the meeting of the Political Affairs Committee.

There are 21 members in KPCC executive committee. Except for Oommen Chandy, Ramesh Chennithala and MM Hassan, the rest have agreed on the decision of supporting Kerala Congress (M) for Rajya Sabha seats. PJ Kurien also had criticised Oommen Chandy. VM Sudheeran has also made a sharp criticism.

The young political leaders and MLAs are sure that the political tiff will cause massive riots. However, KPCC president and Leader of the Opposition PK Kunhalikutty conveyed to the high command that the a group is in the process of controlling Oommen Chandy. Even this will be reflected in a political committee.

The meeting will be held at least for three hours and former CM Oommen Chandy is not expected to attend the meeting as he is in Vijayawada. 

The posters are seen outside the DCC office too slamming Oommen Chandy and Ramesh Chennithala. The posters state that Oommen Chandy and Chennithala are not needed in the Congress party. One of the posters includes the line 'SAVE CONGRESS.' But it is not clear who is behind creating and circulating these posters.

There is a doubt that the UDF leaders might be planning to merge with the Kerala Congress(M) because they are supporting Kerala Congress more than it is needed. If this happens, there are chances that the UDF activists will form another party than join Congress.
