Thiruvananthapuram: Kerala Pradesh Congress Committee decided to oust its leader AP Abdullakutty for his post on Facebook, where he praises Prime Minister Narendra Modi. According to sources, the official decision on this matter will be made by Monday afternoon.

Meanwhile, Kerala Pradesh Congress Committee (KPCC) has sent a letter to Abdullakutty on April 29 seeking explanation regarding the Facebook post. While media enquired about this matter with the leader, he said, “He did not receive ant letter regarding this matter and he will respond once he gets the letter.” 

It is reported that the party has sent a letter through the mail and the leader hesitated to reply. Regarding this, the party proceeded with disciplinary action. 

 The Facebook post by Abdullakutty said, “The political scene is undergoing a change. From now, victory will be for people who go with the development agenda.”

The Congress leader further irked party workers when he compared Narendra Modi to Mahatma Gandhi and said that the Prime Minister was successful because he followed Gandhian values. He praised various schemes of Prime Minister Modi, like the Swachh Bharat Abhiyan (SBA), the Ujjwala Yojana and also said that smart cities, bullet trains were such projects brought to life by Modi that no one could turn a blind eye to them.

His post also said, “Our politics is changing completely. Victory is with development. When Modi is criticised, these facts should be remembered.”

He also said,” Mahatma Gandhi had told social workers that when you formulate a policy, you should remember the face of a poor man whom you have met. Modi implemented it accurately.”

Earlier in March 2009, Abdullakutty was dismissed from CPM for praising Modi, who was the then Gujarat CM, as well as Sheila Dixit, the then Delhi CM, for the progress that they had brought about.
