Rajmohan Unnithan quits as Congress spokesperson in Kerala

A visibly-emotional Rajmohan Unnithan on Tuesday evening resigned as Congress spokesperson in Kerala and handed over the resignation letter to KPCC president VM Sudheeran.

Earlier, 'A' group leader KC Joseph had sent a letter to high command seeking to bring Rajmohan Unnithan under control.

Meanwhile, the verbal spat between long-time foes Rajmohan Unnithan and K Muraleedharan intensified with both tightening their stand against each other.


After Muraleedharan criticised him, Unnithan responded in the same measure in a strongly-worded lengthy address to the media.

Unnithan told media that Muraleedharan had been criticised for humiliating the Congress.

He even compared Muraleedharan to donkey who brays for sensual satisfaction. “I stick to my statements against Muraleedharan. Murali is a son who took a foreign trip on the day of his father Karunakaran’s post-death rites. Murali’s Sharjah trip is a disgrace to the Congress,” he said.

Unnitahan even said that if Muraleedharan were a woman, he would have been a well-known prostitute of Kerala. “If I start speaking more about him, I will have to bring out a book on him. Who is Murali to speak against Congress? Certain people are attacking the Congress by keeping eunuchs as their shied,” he said.

Unnithan also recounted the suffering he had to undergo to save the face of the party men when solar scam rocked the previous UDF government. “Despite constant snubbing from party leaders, I didn’t say anything against the party leaderships or party. I have been serving the party for the past 48 years and if I have brought any bad name to it, I am ready to end my public life,” he added.
