Kannur: Congress leader K.Sudhakaran who is locked in a bitter feud with P.Ramakrishnan Saturday threatened to resign his MP post if the KPCC decided to allow him to continue as Kannur DCC president.
Sudhakaran said P. Ramakrishnan should withdraw the statement that he had not handed over blood money collected for martyred Congress leader Sajith Lal. When the fund was handed over to Sajith Lal’s family Ramakrishnan was not part of Congress leadership, Sudhakaran said.
He said an amount of Rs 1,50,000 was handed over to Sajith Lal’s family at a public function in Payyannur. Another Rs 25,000 was handed over at a public meeting attended by the then KPCC president A.K. Antony, he said. Since Ajith Lal, the brother of Sajith Lal has ascertained that they received the fund P. Ramakrishnan should withdraw the allegation, he said.
If the party decides to allow Ramakrishnan to continue in the post it would mean that Ramakrsihnan’s demand for his resignation on the basis of these allegations are right. In that circumstances he would tender resignation as MP, Sudhakaran said.
