Onam Special - Kerala Congress Onathallu in Kerala

"Kerala Congress is a party that splits as it grows and grows as it splits" - No Wonder K M Mani once defined his own party in his own achayan terms and his own party members are making sure that the definition of their leader is correct.The Kerala Congress has suffered severe divisions and several parallel outfits have emerged through the years fitting or not fitting Mani's definition.

Kerala Congress (Mani)
Kerala Congress (Joseph)
Kerala Congress (Balakrishna Pillai)
Kerala Congress (Jacob)
Kerala Congress (Secular)

The splitting has not affected the growth of the party since the main vote bank of the party is the farming community in Kottayam, Idukki and some other districts of Kerala dominated by Christians and the votes are governed by individual loyalty rather than development agenda . The connections are so strong that most party leaders know each and every family head by his surname so typically there is a solid base for each faction in each constituency where Kerala Congress exists.

However if you are outside Kerala you are missing the great fun that these parties give every year during Onam.

Last Year Kerala Congress (Secular) sponsored the Onathallu and made sure that Kerala Congress (Joseph) resigned from the cabinet . They are promising a sequel this year may be due to the huge success last year and here are the main actors and other stakeholders in the traditional Kerala Congress Onathallu.

@mathew :Hmm, Politics in Kerala is in a sad an pathetic state.KC has been alwasys known as a one man show party. That is why they have defined Kerala Congress as a party that splits as it grows and grows as it splits
