Congress leader Shashi Tharoor, a three-time MP from Trivandrum, is getting very little support from his home state Kerala for the party president poll. While he got a shot in the arm after a few young leaders, including Hybi Eaden (MP), K S Sabarinathan former (MLA) and M K Raghavan (MP), supported him, Kharge has the support of the party’s bigwigs.


Leader of Opposition in Kerala V D Satheeshan said that even though he enjoys an excellent personal rapport with Tharoor, he would vote for Kharge. He said, “Tharoor’s decision to contest the election is not wrong. But I have decided to support Kharge.”

Senior leader of the Congress party and former KPCC president Ramesh Chennithala said, “Tharoor has the right to contest the election as the Congress high command has itself said that it’s an open election. However, Kharge is the apt candidate and I have decided to cast my vote in his favour. He is a very senior leader of the Congress party with experience and has grassroots exposure.”
