Kerala Congress to Launch ‘Jai Ho’ Radio Channel on Independence Day
THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: The Kerala Congress will launch a new radio channel namely “Jai Ho” to broadcast the political viewpoints of the party in the southern state. A decision in this regard was made in the w-day or “Chintan Shivir” brainstorming session of the Congress party.
The channel will go live on August 15 to commemorate the 75th anniversary of the country’s independence. The Congress also decided to reintroduce the political groups that left the United Democratic Front (UDF), which it leads. The party wants to bring back the Kerala (Mani) Congress, which was a major constituent of the UDF for decades before leaving a few years ago.
The Kerala (Mani) Congress is now a member of the ruling Left Democratic Front (LDF), with a cabinet post and a seat in the Rajya Sabha. The Kerala Congress also has a top whip in the LDF.
Kerala (Mani) Congress leader and former MP Stephen George, on the other hand, said: “The Congress should at least explain why we were kicked out of the UDF. We are now an important component of the Left Democratic Front, and we cannot commit to returning to the Congress-led UDF at this time.” During the two-day brainstorming session, Congress also unveiled its “Mission 2024” in preparation for the 2024 general elections.
As part of the mission, the party instructed its cadres to reach out to the backward classes of society and bring them into the fold of Congress. The party also opted to cut ties with ‘Twenty 20’, a political party launched by industrial conglomerate Kitex that ran for a few assembly seats in the 2021 legislative elections.
