SPEECH­LESS IN KOCHI

India Today - - EAR TO THE GROUND -

Yet to re­cover from the sur­prise of his un­ex­pected ap­point­ment on Fe­bru­ary 14, the new Ker­ala Pradesh Congress chief just couldn’t let go of the mi­cro­phone at his in­au­gu­ral party con­ven­tion the next day. This while So­nia Gandhi im­pa­tiently awaited her turn to speak. “I had to al­most chase him away,” So­nia de­clared when V.M. Sud­heeran was fi­nally per­suaded to re­lin­quish the mike. “You now have a new KPCC pres­i­dent and you just now heard his very long speech,” So­nia said, cast­ing an amused look at the red-faced and by now speech­less Ker­ala Congress chief.
