         Tags: Pressure mounts for Thomas Chandy’s resigna
 

THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: The NCP is unperturbed even as the pressure for Transport Minister Thomas Chandy’s resignation from the LDF mounts. NCP state president T P Peethambaran Master has repeated that even though the party is convening a state executive meeting after noon on Tuesday, it is not to discuss about Thomas Chandy’s resignation.

He has clarified that Thomas Chandy’s resignation will be decided only after discussing it with the NCP national leadership. He added that the NCP would announce its stance on the minister’s resignation only after considering the other cases relating to the backwater encroachment issue that would be considered by the court today.

Some of the NCP leaders are making attempts not to discuss the matter of resignation at the meeting today. The state leadership may adopt the stance of not discussing it even if someone raises the issue by citing that it is in the consideration of the party’s national leadership.

About 100 people including members of the feeder organisations would take part in the NCP meeting that would convene today at the Ernakulam Adhyapaka Bhavan by around 2.00 pm. Some of the leaders may insist on discussing the issue if the court makes any remarks regarding the allegations levelled against the minister. It’s even said that some of the leaders are getting ready to do so.

There is a good chance of NCP’s resistance getting into a controversy as the demand for Thomas Chandy’s resignation is strong even within the LDF. More LDF leaders might openly demand the minister’s resignation if a decision regarding the same is not reached after today’s NCP meeting.

Administrative Reforms Commission chairman V S Achuthanandan had opined on Monday that Thomas Chandy would have to be ousted from the LDF if he refuses to resign.

CPI leader Pannian Raveendran had also openly expressed his view that Thomas Chandy must resign. More LDF leaders would voice their opinion regarding the issue based on the outcome of today’s NCP meeting.

The LDF meeting that convened the other day had entrusted Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan to take the final call on minister Thomas Chandy’s resignation, who in turn instructed the NCP to let him know of their decision on the same after internal discussions.

At such a juncture, the decision taken by the CM if the NCP fails to reach a conclusion would be crucial.

NCP national president Sharad Pawar had a telephonic conversation with the Chief Minster to discuss about the status of the case.

It’s doubtful whether the NCP can sustain their support for Thomas Chandy if the pressure mounts from the LDF for the minster’s resignation.
