Kerala Pradesh Congress Committee (KPCC) president VM Sudheeran resigned on certain health grounds on Friday.

The JDU leadership which met in Kozhikode on Sunday felt that Mr Sudheeran's decision to quit is an internal issue of the Congress but it will leave a dent in the UDF image in the long run. The Muslim League, which had defended Mr Sudheeran in his strong stand in liquor policy, is now peeved that he did not bother to take the party into confidence before deciding to call it quits. "Many in the party wish it does not repeat the mistake this time, when the new President would be selected", the leader said. Prolonged treatment is needed for me. When asked whether he will take over the post if the party demands, he said I'm not a party in this. Opposition leader Ramesh Chennithala too favours Chandy as KPCC chief as the duo shared a rapport when Chennithala was the KPCC president and Chandy was the parliamentary party leader. Earlier, he had held the post of Speaker and had also served as the state health minister.

He had a tumultuous tenure as KPCC president with both the Congress (I) and Congress (A) opposing him.

Sudheeran's exit was "a surprise and who his successor is going to be will be decided by the party high command", senior Congress leader K. Sudhakaran said.

Sources close to Sudheeran said that there was no response from the high command and Sudheeran was in no mood to relent. "Once elected, the KPCC president has to look beyond groups", he told mediapersons at the Kasaragod Guest House.
