KPCC Chief VM Sudheeran Steps Down Due to 'Health Reasons'

KPCC Chief VM Sudheeran Steps Down Due to 'Health Reasons'

Sudheeran had been keeping away from public programmes because of ill health after he was recently injured during an event in Kozhikode. The party leadership is apprehensive of the LDF government's move to amend the liquor policy and wonders whether the other top Congress leaders will take a similar strong stand as that of Mr Sudheeran on the issue. "It will take prolonged treatment and hence I was convinced that I can not carry out my duty as KPCC president to its fullest sense", said Sudheeran. "In the present political scenario, as the party president, I can not keep away from duties, not even for a day", Sudheeran said. "It is the time to lead people's agitations".

On Thursday, Sudheeran had informed media that he would be meeting them on Friday afternoon, but no one had an inkling that he had called the press meet to announce his resignation. Sudheeran resigned on Friday. "I am taking this decision based on the advice from doctors".

Sudheeran admitted to the newspersons that he had not discussed the resignation with anyone in the party, not even his closest confidants.

All India Congress Committee president Sonia Gandhi inducted Mr. Sudheeran to the key post on February 11, 2014, stunning former Chief Minister Oommen Chandy and Home Minister Ramesh Chennithala, both of whom had suggested G Karthikeyan as their preferred nominee. But they failed, thanks to Rahul's support to Sudheeran.

Mr. Sudheeran has made a graceful exit, retaining the initiative of choosing the time to put in his papers.

Earlier in the day, Sudheeran put in his papers after a three-year stint as the State Congress president. Chandy has been sulking since the Assembly elections.
