Karunakaran names his daughter political heir

This was announced at a meeting of well-wishers of the veteran at his house here. A resolution was read out saying that Padmaja will be Karunakaran’s political heir.
The meeting was attended by Congress leaders close to him.
Karunakaran’s son K Muraleedharan, who is still waiting to make a comeback to the party, was not present. He had been Karunakaran’s heir a few years back when he alongwith his father had left the Congress.
With the latest development, Padmaja seems to have won the battle between the siblings.

Reacting sharply to the development, Muraleedharan said his father was still strong enough to lead the Congress party.
“Just to get power, father has been taken a hostage, but this cannot go on for long,” said Muraleedharan.

Meanwhile, Defence Minister A K Antony, asked about the renewed factionalism in the state unit of the party, saying it was best that everyone stood united.
“If we are united then we can create wonders. All have to do is introspect if we want to perish or to reach newer heights,” he said.
