Thiruvananthapuram : The Kerala Pradesh Congress Committee (KPCC) on Saturday sought an explanation from senior party leader K.V. Thomas after news reports spoke of him praising Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s administration.
Thomas said he was misquoted. Former Union Minister Thomas represents the Ernakulam Lok Sabha constituency.
According to reports Thomas hailed the Prime Minister while speaking at the 60th anniversary celebrations of the Kerala Management Association there on Friday, reports IANS.
The reports quoted Thomas as saying: “Modi is a good administrator who is able to convince others of his actions.” The reports said that Thomas felt more comfortable dealing with Modi than the leaders in his own party.
KPCC chief M.M. Hassan’s letter to Thomas was circulated to the media wherein he asked the latter to explain if he ever made such a remark.
