Kerala: Rise of Shashi Tharoor will help solve Congress’s leadership crisis. kozhikode news

Kozhikode: Shashi Tharoor’s four-day Malabar tour, which was seen as a launch pad for the three-time Thiruvananthapuram MP to play a bigger role in state politics, ended on Wednesday, triggering an unprecedented churn in the state. Congress Politics. It also established him as a force to be reckoned with as a Congress leader who enjoys wide appeal among diverse social, religious and community groups. Although Tharoor started his political innings 14 years ago, this was his first visit to such an area outside his constituency. The tour appears to have been carefully crafted with political astuteness, reflected in both its timing and intended political outreach.
Apart from meeting key UDF ally IUML and a host of Muslim and Christian leaders, Tharoor’s programs included professional groups including lawyers, doctors, besides acclaimed writers and intellectuals for his appeal and standing.
Apart from being the political home turf of his close confidant MP MK Raghavan, the choice of Malabar was aimed at sending a clear message of Tharoor being a pan-Kerala leader. More importantly, it was aimed at giving a political message to the minority community about their undaunted secular credentials, as the drift of minority votes away from the Congress was seen as a major reason for electoral defeat in 2021.
The timing of his visit was significant as it sought to take advantage of the perceived leadership deficit in the state Congress as many senior leaders are now frail due to age and health reasons. It is no surprise that K Muraleedharan, who was critical of Tharoor contesting the AICC president election, supported him during his Malabar tour.
The tour, however, irked some leaders, who were eyeing a leadership role by him or trying to be the face of the CM, and virtually split the state unit among those who supported his political outreach. used to do and those who were against it; His events saw good attendance and generated a huge buzz. The support he enjoys from the IUML, which thinks Tharoor can be an asset and strengthen the UDF’s prospects, will hold him in good stead. For example, after the MP met him on Wednesday, Bishop Mar Joseph Pamplani of Thalassery said that like every neutral-minded Malayali, he too felt that Tharoor’s leadership in the state would be beneficial to the society.
Tharoor has already shown that he was not deterred by the party’s traditional establishment when he contested the AICC president’s election with the slogan ‘Think tomorrow think Tharoor’. The 1,072 votes he polled shows that the party has an inherent craving for change, which it wants to tap in Kerala after back-to-back electoral upsets in the recent past.
