AICC general secretary in charge of Kerala Tariq Anwar has submitted a report to party president Sonia Gandhi highlighting the need for certain corrective measures following a visit to the state where he held meetings with state leaders regarding the party’s poor performance in the recent local body elections.
The LDF had won 514 of the 941 gram panchayats, 10 of the 14 district panchayats and 108 of the 152 block panchayats. The UDF finished first in 375 gram panchayats, 44 block panchayats and four district panchayats. The NDA, led by the BJP, won 23 gram panchayats.
Anwar said that that they will change things at district and block levels, while adding that shortage of funds and groupism also played a role in the lacklustre performance.
