Now, trouble breaks out in Youth Congress in Kerala

Published

Thiruvananthapuram, Sep 2: Even as the trouble in the Congress in Kerala continues over the selection of 14 district party presidents, the Youth Congress is also witnessing infighting after the announcement of the spokesperson’s name.

The party had to put the names on hold an hour after they were announced.

Among the four names declared was Arjun Radhakrishnan, who is the son of Congress veteran and senior legislator Thiruvanchoor Radhakrishnan.

Radhakrishnan, till the other day was the top leader in the faction of the Congress party led by two-time former Chief Minister Oommen Chandy. But after being miffed with Chandy and others not batting for him to the post of the Leader of Opposition, Radhakrishnan alienated himself from the faction that Chandy leads now, and instead got closer to new state party president K.Sudhakaran.

Arjun, an engineer by profession, told the media that he did not have any idea on why the list after being announced was quickly put on hold.

Radhakrishnan was quick to respond when he said he has no clue of what has happened and his son was a matured person and can choose his ways.

“I have no idea and I have no role in his appointment,” said Radhakrishnan.

State Youth Congress president Shafi Parambil, who is also a Congress legislator said as soon as he heard about the announcement of the list of spokespersons which came without his knowledge, he immediately got in touch with the national leadership and got it cancelled.

“Being the son of a Congress leader doesn’t mean there is an advantage and also it need not be seen as a disadvantage either,” said Parambil.

Parambil also ruled out the speculation that AICC general secretary (organisation) K.C. Venugopal had a role in the appointment as the post for Arjun came as a gratis for Radhakarishnan joining the new power centre of Sudhakaran, Leader of Opposition V.D. Satheesan, which is being controlled by Venugopal.

Call me “Dada”, not “Sir”, Tripura CM Biplab Kumar Deb to employees

Agartala: In what appears to be a step to boost the morale of the government employees, Chief Minister Biplab Kumar Deb on Sunday asked the government employees to call him “Dada” instead of “Sir”. “Call me Dada, not sir. It enhances the warmth of the relationship”, Deb told a gathering of government employees.

Deb exhorted the government employees of the state especially ASHA and Anganwadi workers of the state asking them not to dishearten as the state government was eager to improve their pay structure.

“I salute the ASHA and Anganwadi workers of my state. The level of dedication that my sisters have shown during the pandemic period deserved applause. I know, they want to hear good news from me and I am assuring you all that this government will not disappoint anyone”, Chief Minister Biplab Kumar Deb told a gathering of government employees at Badharghat sports school field organized by Vivekananda Vicha Manch (VVM).

VVM has emerged as a big platform of government employees, of late, and Sunday’s public rally was its first big gathering to thank the Chief Minister for the series of steps his government took for the welfare of the employees.

“I know what challenges you people are facing. Nothing is hidden in front of me. I am assuring you all everything will be taken care of in the due course of time”, he added.  Lauding the efforts of government employees Deb said, without them no government office can function.

“Due to the efforts of government employees, people can access the benefits of the state sponsored welfare schemes. But, for a prolonged period the employees did not get their right to do something freely. They were trapped in the clutches of unions. In the previous regime, Left sponsored unions used to enjoy supreme power which had reduced the whole work culture of the state to tatters. In 2018, you people showed courage and voted BJP to power”, said Deb.

“Despite fund constraints, the state government is positively working on the issues of DA and other factors pertaining to the interest of the government employees. Our government has already addressed a number of issues related to financial benefits. The ad-hoc promotion, increment for Group D, Group C employees, regularization of SSA teachers, seventh pay scale, UGC scale for professors, special benefit for LTC are to name a few. All these indicate what we want to do and we shall do what we promise”, the Chief Minister said.

The Chief Minister also asked the officials not to call him “sir” suggesting them to refer to him as “Dada” as it makes the relationship stronger and cherished. The Chief Minister also distributed clothes among children of Badharghat sports school during the programme. State BJP President Manik Saha, Minister Ram Prasad Paul, Minister Sushanta Chowdhury, MLA Mimi Majumder, state BJP Vice President and president of Vivekananda Vichar Manch Rajib Bhattacharjee also spoke on the occasion.
