Ramesh and chief minister Oommen Chandy will be leaving for New Delhi this Thursday for having discussions with the party high command. Though the visit has been scheduled to finalise the new KPCC president for the state, the state leadership will also be airing their difficulty in selecting the candidates for the Lok Sabha elections too early.

Meanwhile, the meeting also decided to complete the revamp of all the district congress committee and all the committees from the block, booth and mandalam level before January 15. All the DCCs have been asked to complete the revamping on time.

Ramesh said that the Congress in the state is confidant of repeating the performance of 2009 in the Lok Sabha elections and the seat sharing exercise will be a smooth affair within the front. He was reacting to the queries on the demand made by some of the UDF constituents for contesting in more seats.
