Kerala Congress to launch radio channel on August 15

Thiruvananthapuram, July 24 (IANS): The Kerala Congress will launch a new radio channel – “Jai Ho” – to broadcast the political views of the party in the southern state. A decision to this effect was made during the two-day brainstorming session or ‘Chintan Shivir’ of the Congress.

The channel will air from August 15 to mark the country’s 75th Independence Day celebrations.

The Congress also decided to reinstate the political parties which had left the United Democratic Front (UDF) which it led. The party is keen to bring back the Kerala (Mani) Congress, which was a major element of the UDF for several decades before leaving its fold a few years ago.

Today, the Kerala (Mani) Congress is a constituent of the ruling Left Democratic Front (LDF) party with a ministerial seat and a seat in Rajya Sabha. The LDF Chief Whip is also from the Kerala (Mani) Congress.

However, Kerala (Mani) Congress leader and former MP Stephen George told IANS: “The Congress should at least inform us of the reasons why we were expelled from the UDF. We are now an important part of the Left Democratic Front and we cannot at this stage. make a commitment to return to the Congress-led UDF.”

During the two-day brainstorming session, the Congress also launched its “Mission 2024” ahead of the general elections scheduled for 2024.

As part of the mission, the party called on its cadres to reach out to the backward classes of society and bring them into the fold of Congress.

The party has also decided not to have ties with “Twenty 20”, a political party launched by the industry group Kitex, which contested some seats in the Assembly in the 2021 legislative elections.
